Narika Mckenzie is our talented winner who took out the ‘Girls’ category of last year’s MC Photo Comp.
She’s also the last person ever to do so, as ‘Girls’ is no more, making way for our incredible new ‘Portrait’ category. The Sydney-born photographer took out the prize in ’16 with Danielle, an entry of her best friend taken on a golden hour walk when the light decided to fall through the trees and gift her, and ultimately us, with a winning photo.
Narika told us when she won, “If I can be shooting the people I love doing nothing in the hazy afternoon sun for the next 30 years it’ll be the dream.” Turns out she’s been doing a lot of just that in the year since winning our comp, filling up her portfolio with dreamy, intimate portraits and sun-dappled moments across Europe and back home in Australia.
We caught up Narika to get a glimpse of what’s been inspiring her of late, and she hit us back with these incredible shots.
