I’m Micaela Flenda, an independent curator and producer with international experience in fashion video production and photography, a field I had the opportunity to work in, collaborating with talented international artists and photographers.
After long and detailed thought sharing with photographers and experts of the fashion field, I have decided to create a curatorial project narrating the emerging fashion photography.
In this show-case exhibition entitled This is Me Not Being You, I will approach 7 talented international photographers, extremely heterogeneous, who will face this theme with their personal aesthetic language.
The project stems from the desire to ponder the importance of a new and innovative language in the fashion photography, either personal and revolutionary, reportage-like and desecrating; a hotbed of creating energy and a mirror of the contemporary culture which is now living violent and contradictory social changes.
The exhibition will not represent only fashion photography as the expression of the contemporary style and trends but also as the voice of a young generation who is searching a new undefined and fluid identity, within a context of values crisis and transformation.
This Is Me Not Being You is inaugurating its first show-case photography exhibition in February 2016, together with the Milan Women Fashion Week: the exposing project wants to combine photography techniques with heterogeneous visions, creating a kaleidoscope showing all the facets of the contemporary fashion photography.
