Photographic artist and Redeye Member, Natalie Wardle returns to host an evening that includes presentations from other talented northern photographers Sade Mica and Lucie Crewdson whose work looks at the human form in visual art and performance.
Natalie Wardle is a visual artist and photographer from Manchester. Her work looks at how women construct their bodies to fit in with society’s ideal body types, exploring shapewear and tape that is placed over nipples to both cover and repress their form.
The work of Sade Mica explores her experiences navigating the world as a queer, black person and the nuances that brings in fleshing out an identity that is often met with contempt and confusion.
Lucie Crewdson is a photographer living and working in Manchester. Lucie's photographic practise revolves around everyday experiences, the use of the body, elements of performance and sits within a fashion and fine art context.
