Whenever I see Tanya in the distance I see someone enjoying being herself, deep in thought, as she walks, often with wide skirts swinging around her calves. Her clothes are feminine and strong. As she is.
When I asked if I could photograph her I also asked if she could choose what she wore. Tanya chose warm clothes that made her feel cosy and, I think, like a cherished and joyful child.
I love her arms spread wide. That's Tanya.
