Filipe presents a stark series of photographs that explore the relationship between a mother and daughter, against deeper themes of death and regeneration in nature.

The symbiotic relationship between plants and animals is symbolised in these human subjects. The frailty of beauty and the certainty of death are parts of an eternal cycle and, like the images, conjure a sense of both horror and awe.

A Hume Arts Youth Award 2020 recipient, Filipe has completed his VCE studies at Aitken College in 2020 and this series of images was part of his final year portfolio. Filipe is currently studying Production Design at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA).
