The essential subject of Laid Bare is the raw nature of being human. This series is an optimistic portrait study that explores the beauty to be found within us all. The beach has served as a symbol of our national culture since the early 20th century, representing traditional Australian qualities such as openness, acceptance and egalitarianism. 

However, depictions of the beach have in the past been typically dominated by good looking, bronzed and muscly Anglo Saxons. Laid Bare seeks to challenge this narrative, by putting forth an alternate conception of beauty. It is a contemporary portrayal which shows the range of new Australians embracing the sun, sand and sea.
