Rise! surveyed ten inspirational and forging women, through portrait and story, from the North East Victorian and Murray regions.
Standing tall in vast and varied fields from community service and environment, to sport and entertainment, the women celebrated in Nat Ord's environmental portraits have pushed boundaries and paved ways in their quest for voice, recognition and success.
Each portrait had been captured in the environment of the subject, giving a visual indication of how each has succeeded through activity, belief, and ability.
Ord's passion for environment, place and personal stories were evident in her portraits, each composed and shot in full consultation and discussion with the sitter, in the environment in which they held their power.
