Description

Fashion Shows. editor Nigel Shafran is as well known for his art practice as for being one of the UK’s most respected fashion photographers. Writer and critic, Professor Francis Hodgson chats to Nigel about how he put together his Brighton Photo Biennial 2016 exhibition, the resulting works, his thoughts on the fashion industry and more.

For the exhibition Fashion shows.Nigel Shafran has been invited by Photoworks to create a ‘cabinet of curiosities’ especially for BPB16.

A carefully crafted and edited installation, Fashion shows. combines unexpected images and objects that provide an alternative and visually rich view into notions of beauty as circulated by the fashion photography industry.

This bespoke exhibition presents imagery from a range of eras, including Paul Elliman’s moving image version of his iconic September magazine which highlights the glut of imagery delivered via the standard issue glossy magazines.

The eclectic character of the installation is drawn out through objects including model cards and vintage beauty treatment manuals creating connections that encourage us to examine the tools, strategies and distractions used by the fashion world.
