About

This photographic collection draws upon Sarah Carpenter's mixed feelings of London (living, working and studying here) and those of a group of female dancers starting out on a similar journey. For a supposedly liberal city, nudity remains shocking. Through this work Carpenter intends to show a naked truth whilst advertising the beauty and creativity of the city. The work specifically references the portrayal of women as nudes within classical painting, juxtaposed within modern environments highlighting the diversity of London as both a traditional and modern city. It is strongly influenced by dance, as a visual form of communication. Born in Sussex, lived in Leytonstone for 3yrs, studied photography at Kensington & Chelsea college & exhibited in locations such as Times Square, events such as the Brighton Festival, and in some wonderful venues such as the Red Bull Gallery, Asylum, The Stone Space, William Road Gallery, Slate, Pictorem & Cork Street Gallery where Sarah won the photographic award in 2013.
