In the picture – Shifting perspectives in fashion photography is an exhibition curated by Alexandra von Fuerst, Camila Falquez, Nadine Ijewere and Ruth Ossai for Photo Vogue Festival 2020.Photographs are inherently political, as acts of choosing and displaying them. Fashion photography is layered and complex, a dream factory that is more and more predominantly the preferred stage where collective identities are played and created. Photo Vogue Festival will explore the current fashion photography landscape, by initiating a dialogue among four of its most brilliant minds.Camila Falquez, Nadine Ijewere, Alexandra von Fuerst and Ruth Ossai are all “contemporary socially conscious fashion photographers”.They belong to a new generation of artists whose aesthetics are a hybrid of genres, and are themselves a driving force for change. Their work engages in a dialogue with visual arts and journalism, as well as with an assimilated desire to balance out the various levels of representation. The work of Camila, Nadine, Alexandra and Ruth avoids being didactic whilst touching on issues of gender, race, and womanhood, and is simultaneously glamorous, vibrant and powerful. For this exhibition, Photo Vogue Festival 2020 gives space to their vision, initiating a four-way dialogue where the artists are also curators.The exhibition will be visible online on the dedicated digital platform from 19 to 22 November 2020. Excerpts of the exhibitions of Photo Vogue Festival 2020 will also be displayed outdoors from October 30th until November 22nd, in the Giardini di Porta Venezia in Milan, to allow the community to interact with the works.Plus, the exhibition will be visible in central points of the city of Milan on the Maxi Led Urban Vision, during the same period.
