Priayangka being the fourth girl in the Fielding Lowah bloodline, my youngest daughter.
This image is a portrait of Priayangka. I have tried to capture how her bloodline, my bloodline has shaped her identity yet at
the same time I have tried to capture her youth and innocence and how life is yet to make a mark. I have nine children and
although they are my blood, their own life choices will come to define them.
Here Priayangka wears traditional Pakastani dress, this represents our heritage and our Afgahn, Pakistani ancestors. It is their
bloodline that Priayangka carries.
To wear these sacred clothing that were a present, and to stand on her own and to wear clothing of foreign culture that
belongs to me too. Blessed is the one that hangs this on their wall, as culture is what makes this country Australia.
