PRIVATE LIVES

“Private Lives” documents a series of encounters with women from New York's thriving burlesque scene.

Dressed as creatures of their own imagination against the canvas of everyday existence, these portraits expose a moment of convergence between the trajectories of each girls life. The veneer between public and private is broken to reveal something unexpectedly honest beneath.

Sarah's work explores the human drive in relation to the individual’s temporal and spatial environment; with a particular interest in the creation of narrative or fiction to engage with social attitudes and environmental issues. Her preferred approach involves creating staged images in collaboration with each subject. A process that involves infiltrating the narrative of a strangers life, sharing an idea, which is then relayed into the image.

Sarah Howe is a photographic artist based in London. After graduating from the University of Westminster in 2010 Sarah has joined the Bow Arts Trust and continues to develop her practise.

The Foundry Gallery is very pleased to present Sarah Howe's first solo show.

The colour in these photographs is so intense and really brings out the character of the Burlesque dancers.
