Taylor, who was was taken by Wheatley’s ability to “capture a part of me that people rarely see,” says the portraits speak to the urgency – and potential – for change: “These portraits are about hope: they show a dreamscape of social change. They are about the possibility of building a future city where wellbeing and wholeness reign.”
