Dynamic Nude Self Portraits Depict One Woman’s Changing Body Over Seven Years (NSFW)



Over the duration of seven years, London based photographer Polly Penrose created a series of dynamic self portraits that examine a woman’s changing body and it’s emotional reaction to a physical space. The series, titled Body of Work, began in a purely organic way, stemming from her desire to capture eccentric nude portraits, while aware she could more accurately dictate concepts and ideas using herself as a subject rather than a model.

Photographer Creates Deeply Intimate Moments with Complete Strangers


The Lovers (no.5)

Sisters (no.2)

Urban environments and handheld technology can make the world an isolating and lonely place, genuine connections often replaced with texts or tweets. How long does it take to gain some one’s trust or become close enough to share secrets? Can intimacy be concocted in mere moments or does it take years? Hemya Moran plays with ideas of communion and relationships in her series Intimate Strangers. Approaching individuals in the street, Moran asked them to have an “intimate acquaintance with her”. They then enacted these private moments in a short exchange, resulting in a series that feels simultaneously unnatural and surreally familiar. The viewer must guess at the relationship, left to wonder at the origin and truthfulness of each staged setting.

EXHIBITION: Martina Lindqvist: Neighbours / Murmurs, The Photographers’ Gallery, 16–18 Ramillies Street, 31 October – 14 January
Celebrated Finnish photographer Martina Lindqvist presents Neighbours and Murmurs, two recent series exploring the theme of memory, family, and loss. Neighbors documents a scarcely inhabited region in Finland, digitally expanding the space that surrounds its houses to underscore its remoteness. Murmurs takes an indirect look at the faltering memory of the artist’s grandmother, who struggles with Alzheimer’s. By constructing still lifes of withering flowers set in cardboard vases, Lindqvist explores the ways in which the significance we place on “keeping up appearances” diminishes as we negotiate our final years of life.

Taken at the Borders Between Urban and Rural Communities, Photographs Show China in Transition



The young and the old, the dusty and the new, the rural and the urban. In Borderlands, a collection of photographs from Chinese photographer Jiehao Su, the strange, ethereal parts of modern China are shown in muted pastel. They are hazy places of beige condominiums and mountain-sized piles of recyclables, of dark fauna and browned grass. Some areas look exhausted while some are tranquil and serene. They are the parts of China that are in transition.
