I’ve been following the dreamy work of young Australian Photographer Nirrimi Hakanson since January last year (she was 17). She’s now 18 and the massive amount of beautiful work she’s done since then, as well as the marks she’s made in the commercial world prove that she’s going from strength to strength.

I grew up in the warmest place I know, North Queensland. It was always summer and my parents were wild and free, my childhood unconventionally beautiful. All that was, inspired all that is now. And so the naivety and quiet beauty of youth fascinates me, photography becomes a way to relive my own childhood.

Whether I’m shooting an international fashion campaign or my younger sister in my backyard, I always feel the same. Like I never want to stop.

I take photos because it’s all I know and want.
