Come along to be introduced to the evocative work and world created by Redeye member Allie Crewe. You brought your own light is an immersive celebration, depicting women’s stories of change and transformation.
Allie states, “I love to photograph teenagers, trans women, women surviving illness or escaping violent marriages. It is not just the physical changes that draw me but how sometimes our internal, emotional lives change, too. To take a person’s image is political and is, in part, self-portrait. I am representing women, exploring their narratives and interweaving them with my own.”
Who is it for?
Currently being exhibited in the iconic Manchester Central Library, Allie invites everyone to view, enjoy and construct their own meaning through the work. The personal accounts of each subject are for everyone, and they are exhibited on behalf of national transgender charity, Sparkle.
