Extraordinary Portraits 20 June 2022: Series 2 Episode 2 on BBC One 11

Charlotte Banfield has cerebral palsy and autism. Bullied at school and once afraid to leave the house, she is now an adaptive surfer. Her match is Bella Kotak, a fine-art, fashion and portrait photographer who is inspired by fairy tales and nature. Can Bella transform this shy surf champion who was once afraid of water into the main character of her own fairy tale?

Bella travels down to Charlotte’s hometown of Cornwall to immerse herself in the surfer’s paradise of Newquay and meet the woman who gave Charlotte the confidence to believe in herself and the water, her mum.

In this transformative portrait, we see a beautiful friendship form and a magical work of art made.
