Lecturers exhibition shows different side to international fashion

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.
