This May, Huxley-Parlour are pleased to present ‘The Female Lens: 9 Contemporary Female Photographers’ at Photo London 2018 art fair at Somerset House, London. Huxley-Parlour’s booth will focus on established and emerging photographer’s including Valerie Belin, Cig Harvey, Jocelyn Lee, Amanda Charchian and Petrina Hicks. Huxley-Parlour are delighted to be celebrating the works of female photographers who explore femininity as a means to extend the narrative of photography within the context of contemporary society.
Each artist seeks to represent femininity in disparate ways. Valerie Belin, Tonje Boe Birkeland and Petrina Hicks focus on critiquing stereotypical depictions of women through their work to bring original perspectives on contemporary femininity. While Prue Stent & Honey Long, Amanda Charchian and Jocelyn Lee work within established tropes of art history, such as the nude, to create often surreal images that confront the concept of the gaze.
Huxley-Parlour gallery will be exhibiting at booth G09 at Photo London 2018 from 17th May – 20th May.
Featured artists: Valerie Belin, Tonje Boe Birkeland, Amanda Charchian, Cig Harvey, Petrina Hicks, Jocelyn Lee, Kourtney Roy, Prue Stent x Honey Long, Johanna Stickland.
