In the delicate eyes of her subjects, Lydia Greenaway conveys a sense of raw emotion, as she builds a natural chemistry with each. With each shot, she uses the faded natural world to create a soft yet intriguing contrast between subject and settings. The naturally glamorous nature of her choice of models is appealing to viewers who connect with them on an emotional level through every snap of the lens.

At just 18, Greenaway has mastered the art of evoking raw emotion, though she claims she is still finding her style and anticipates a long road of growth within her art. "It’s like trying to find a way of binding limitless things inside the boundaries of a box, with color and shapes you don’t actually see until you confine them," according to the artist. Her philosophy is evident as she pieces together each portrait with a level of intimacy and beauty that is unmatched.
