Maddison Whitford is a young Autralian-based photographer. She combines her passion for the ocean with bush lands to render highly naturalistic photographs. Her ‘Haunted Hippie’ series explores humans relationship with land, evoking feelings of familiarity and warmth through tones and emphasized texture. The artist juxtaposes soft focus on nature with a sharp and highly defined focus on the subject, alluring the audience with a more dynamic review of nature. The scene is on both a beach and in the woods, creating an apparent nostalgia for summer, and connection to the earth.

The model is adorned with sunny face jewels, stacked bangles and breezy apparel. The makeup was done by Mickeela Whitford, favoring rusty tones to bring out the model’s piercing green eyes.
