Taking inspiration from the Pre-Raphaelite era, these delicate pencil portraits of women highlight themes of timelessness and the beauty of strength. Asgher references vintage portrait photography of women from the 1900s and obscures the background to focus the viewers gaze on the subject’s face. He further enhances facial features that reveal complex emotions of calm and strength.
