DoBeDo Contributor Nigel Shafran has been invited by Photoworks to create a ‘cabinet of curiosities’ for the Brighton Photo Biennal 2016, opening on Friday 30th September 2016.
A carefully 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. 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.
‘Fashion Shows‘ at BPB16 opens on Friday 30th September until 30th October 2016, at the University of Brighton Galleries – Dorset Place.
