For Aranda, the true challenge of portraiture is to try and express as much as possible about a person in one, singular image. The artist was commissioned to take Dina Asher Smith’s portrait for Harrods Magazine. Dina is not actively courting the limelight; her eyes are set on her sporting goals. The side-on positioning as well as the movement encapsulates both her humility and incredible physical ability.
