2023 OVPUE Fine Arts Awards First Place Winner

Lydia Norton is a sophomore studying both Photography in the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design and Journalism in The Media School.

Dance was a major part of Norton’s life as she was growing up. That led to her work focusing on ideas of womanhood, femininity, and experiences told through the human body, she said.

“I want to create an open space where audiences can learn more about and relate to the female experiences shown within my photographs,” Norton said.

Featuring her work:
Cramped and Femaleness
