POSTURING: PHOTOGRAPHING THE BODY IN FASHION
November will see the opening of a new group exhibition which deconstructs the female body in today’s fashion photography. Posturing: Photographing the Body in Fashion is co-curated by fashion curator and archivist Shonagh Marshall and image director and art buyer Holly Hay, who together co-founded The Ground Floor Project.
Posturing: Photographing the Body in Fashion brings together exhibiting photographers Coco Capitan, Johnny Dufort, Charlotte Wales, Lena C. Emery, Brianna Capozzi, Tyrone Lebon, Marton Perlaki, Charlie Engman, Pascal Gambarte, Tim Elkaïm, Estelle Hanania, Andrea Artemisio, Reto Schmid, Bibi Cornejo Borthwick, Blommers and Schumm, Zoe Ghertner, Hanna Moon and It’s Nice That’s 2017 One To Watch Joyce NG.
Work by the photographers will be exhibited alongside commissioned editorials from the pages of British Vogue, AnOther, i-D, Interview, The Gentlewoman, Double and Self Service.
The exhibition will delve deep into the entire creative process: casting, styling, location, props, and art direction. Posturing: Photographing the Body in Fashion will be the first part of a partnership with theoutnet.com which will extend to a further two parts. Following the exhibition will be a commissioned film Filming the body in Fashion, which will be launched at Art Basel, Miami, and finally a book, Posturing: Writing the Body in Fashion published by Self Publish Be Happy.
