DoBeDo is excited to announce English as a Second Language, the exhibition of DoBeDo contributor Hanna Moon and Joyce Ng. Both photographers have created a new series of work responding directly to the history of Somerset House.
Bringing distinct Asian perspectives to their work, they reflect upon the power fashion photography holds in shaping our perceptions of beauty, style and taste. Ng draws inspiration from the renowned sixteenth century Chinese novel ‘Journey to the West’ to create images which feel both familiar, yet surreal. Moon presents a dramatic reimagining of Somerset House’s neoclassical setting; photographing in the dark of night, rebelliously ‘invading’ the site to create a series of intimate works of her two female muses that reflect her personal experiences living in UK.
