Rise! surveys inspirational and forging women, through portrait and story, from the local North East Victoria and Border Murray region. Standing tall in vast and varied fields from community service and environment to sport and entertainment, these women have pushed boundaries and paved ways in their quest for voice, recognition and success.
Each portrait has been captured in the environment of the sitter to show where or how they are excelling in their surrounds through activity, ability and belief. Through research and discussion with each subject, every portrait was composed and shot in full consultation to create the images presented in this exhibition.

Nat Ord’s passion for environment, place & personal stories meld together in her environmental portraiture. As a photographic storyteller, Nat’s aesthetic is impressionable & always predetermined by her subject & their story. This dictates where, when & how she gets her capture to best portray the narrative at hand.
Over the past decade of mostly self-directed photographic exploration, Nat has gone from detailing flora in the Victorian Alps to shooting notable musicians live, to getting amongst rush hour crowds in Tokyo & everything in between. Her subjects & environments are extensive & limitless, as are the techniques she uses & the aesthetics she employs, fundamentally to portray her story & message.
