A study of body image and anatomy through contemporary photography, film and digital media framed by a series of provocations.
The politics of beauty and identity has been long debated as part of an explorations of gender, race and the image of self. The shape of our faces, texture of hair and complexion of skin map our ancestry and are the very essence of our identities.

NOW Gallery invites contemporary photographers and filmmakers and animators to map out a series of images that articulate our cosmetic rituals, manipulate faces, hair and anatomy whilst capturing the subtle blemishes, nuances and imperfections that make us all individual.

Featured photographers:
NADINE IJEWERE
ALMA HASER
NAKEYA BROWN
ISABELLE WENZEL
JOY GREGORY
CHARLOTTE COLBERT
FRANKNITTY3000
NICOLE CHUI
AART VERRIPS

This exhibition will draw together archival imagery, contemporary photography collections, video doodles and a selection of newly commissioned works.

This is the second exhibition in the Human Stories series, NOW Gallery’s series of annual small displays that encourage contemporary discourse on modern life and the human scale by engaging with modern progressive communities, artists, photographers, filmmakers, writers and thinkers that will be translated into a compelling visual display.

The Body Issue will knit together the themes of race, identity, intersecting identities, idealisation and objectification of self.

Human Stories is commissioned by Kaia Charles for NOW Gallery. Exhibition design, Joana Filipe
