Digital Painting by Marne Potgieter

Recently I received an email, attached was this fantastic digital painting painting of a portrait I shot of a soldier from the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces. The image was one in a series, which won the Portrait Award 2015 Juror's Pick in a LensCulture portrait competition.

The talented artist is Marne Potgieter and she has kindly given me permission to display her work.

In 2015 I spent time in Sierra Leone documenting the British Governments support to the Ebola Crisis. Dark times for many, much the same as the world is now experiences with COVID-19.

You can read about this in my older post "Sierra Leone" and "Sierra Leone - Part 2, Streets & People". Also don't forget to check out Marne Potgieter on her Facebook and Instagram @marnepotgieter.
