The Outnet to host exhibition studying the role of the female body in fashion photography

Luxury fashion etailer The has teamed up with The Ground Floor Project to host a unique photography exhibition. Entitled 'Posturing: Photographing the Body in Style' the group exhibition aims to examine and explore the role the female form has in contemporary fashion photography.

Showcasing a range of photographs from 2010 to 2017, this exhibition follows the movement in which the feminine body is captured in extraordinary poses, tracing the rise of a new aesthetic in fashion photography which continues to develop today.

Co-curated by Holly Hay and Shonagh Marshall from The Ground Floor Project, the photography exhibition is the first of a three-part partnership with The The exhibition will include work from celebrated photographers such as Charlie Engman, Johnny Dufort, Marton Perlaki and Zoe Ghertner among others.

Their work will be showcased alongside seminal editorial images from the archives of British Vogue, The Gentlewoman, AnOther, i-D Interview, Double and Self Service. The exhibition has split the processes behind the images into five thematic areas, with each examining a different element within the creative process: casting, styling, location, props and layout.

'Posturing: Photographing the Body in Style' is set to open its doors to the public on November 2, at 10 Thurloe Place, London. It will run until November 12. The second part of the partnership between the and The Ground Floor Project will launch in December, with the third launching sometime next March.
