Estelle Woolley (Highly Commended), Breathe

Breathe, photograph self-portrait with moss, 2020.

Estelle presents a self-portrait made during the first week of isolation in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The facemask, an increasingly familiar sight in the everyday world, is made using moss from the garden, acting as a filter. Through a minimal and poetic use of materials, which are often very fragile, she succinctly highlights how the health of humans connects with the natural world. Estelle has a degree and Masters in Fine Art from the University of Chester.
