If you’re sick of your friends taking pictures with their phones, slapping an Instagram filter on it, and thinking they’re Annie Leibovitz, then you should check out the work of Morganna Magee.

She’s a Melbourne-based photographer who manages to illustrate the story of her subjects in lush black and white images. Magee focuses on unpretentious and neglected subjects that have often been dealt a cruel hand in life. Her work is raw, unflinching, and always captures the truth.
