Portrait commission of Victoria Johnson shot in the Scottish Highlands for a feature about the rise in free birthing (giving birth at home without medical assistance). A number of women opted for free birthing (not their first choice) during the Covid-19 pandemic as women's rights to choose where and how they wish to give birth have been eroded as a consequence of the pandemic.
