    Meet Liz Looker, winner of The National Photographic Portrait Prize 2016 and winner of the National Photographic Portrait Prize Art Handlers' Award 2019.
    I first discovered Liz (www.lizlooker.net) and her lovely photographs while in Paris celebrating a big birthday several years ago. I was captivated by her pictures which seemed to have a transcendental quality, transmitting something beautiful that I couldn't quite put my finger on. I looked her up and began to follow her on Instagram! (@Liz_Looker)

    I was thrilled to be able to spend some time on the phone to Liz over in Perth in Australia. I do hope you enjoy getting to know Liz and discovering her world, I know I certainly have.
