Sacred bodies and the divine. From the inception of the photographic practice, spirituality, sex and race have influenced the portrait. It is important for the Caribbean photographer to capture and document his/her community and experiences. This portrait manifests both the strength of the female and the softness of the masculine form.

kelly-Ann Bobb is an analogue freelance photographer based in the twin island state of Trinidad and Tobago. She has always had a natural inclination towards creativity. After completing medical school, she fell in love with the unending complexities of film photography.
