A FREEDOM MOVEMENT BY MICHELLE BEATTY
Leman Locke is proud to present Michelle Beatty's newest photographic series, where three talented subjects with backgrounds in ballet, modelling and choreography are captured in the prime of their lives; embodying strength, wisdom, and feminine beauty. The subjects are offset by strong skies, powerful waves and brooding clouds.
These 26 pieces will be exhibited across each floor of the lifestyle hotel in Aldgate East. They will be accompanied by a short moving imagine vignette of dancer Anna Engerström, as she conducts a series of improvised movements and rhythms while shooting; revealing the openness of connection between the photographer and her muse.
ABOUT MICHELLE BEATTY
Michelle spent much of her childhood barefoot in rural Australia, running carefree under sprinklers and jumping in creeks. Her early photographic subjects were broken down wooden carts, old shearing sheds, big skies and epic sunrises. There was a freedom in those wide open spaces.
Soon after graduating from Melbourne’s RMIT university with a degree in fine arts and photography, she took her camera and her ambition to London, the epicentre of the fashion world. From early on, she realised that she could relate to the female models and truly connect with them.
“I see women as I want to be seen - beautiful and powerful.”
In her thirteen years career since, Michelle has had the opportunity to collaborate with global leaders in their fields including; Teatum Jones, Seren and Arabella London, as well as a number of editorial and advertising clients globally.
