I’m so excited to announce that Embodiment will be going international! I have been commissioned by Martin Parr, the well-known British documentary photographer, collector and curator, to create a portrait of Brighton’s thriving queer community for exhibition at this years Photo Biennial in October. I will be staying there (along with American photographer Zoe Strauss) Aug 3rd – 9th to photograph the Pride festivities! Needless to say, I am brushing up on Brighton’s history, looking for interesting subjects, mapping out all the beaches and trying to get a sense of what it means to be Queer & British today. I’ve seen so many black and white photos and illustrations of old beach scenes that I really want to carry this vintage seaside, carnival feeling into the work. People of Brighton, am I way off base? Please write to me with any words of wisdom and help me shape this portrait of your city! – Molly Landreth
I love this illustration! See where it came from, visit the website Brighton Our Story.
