Lecturers exhibition shows different side to international fashion
Friday, 17 September 2010
ECU adjunct lecturer in the School of Communications and Arts, Ms Michelle Taylor is bringing a touch of New York fashion to the South West town of York with her photography exhibition Fashion Trails.
The exhibition, which opened on Saturday, 4 September at the York Mill Gallery, is a series of behind the scenes photographs taken at international fashion shows, providing audiences with a candid look at the vulnerable side of international modelling.
Taylor’s photos, all developed in black and white, capture real life moments, showing models smoking, talking and waiting around and are a stark comparison to the glossy runway pictures that dominate our fashion magazines.
“I find things beautiful that aren’t supposed to be, when you think no-one is watching, and your guard is down, there’s something beautiful about that vulnerability,” said Ms Taylor.
Ms Taylor, who has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Photomedia, has over eight years of international photography experience as a trend forecaster, studio manager and photographer.
She now teaches Fashion Photography at ECU, where she passes on her passion and knowledge to budding fashion photographers.
Date: Saturday, 4 September to Sunday, 3 October
Time: 10.00am to 4.00pm (Tuesday to Thursday); 9.00am to 5.00pm (Saturday to Sunday)
Venue: The York Mill Gallery, 13 Broome Street, York
