Non-Binary Portrait Series part 2

Hi!! I’ve been in complete hibernation all winter but I am back! With some photos I’ve been holding on to for a long time! But without further ado…here is part 2 of my non-binary portrait series :) 

you can view the whole series here : www.laurencephilomene.com/nonbinary

& all of these will be on display in may in Berlin in my first solo exhibition in collaboration with curated by girls, more on that soon!

from the first part of the series :

 My aim with this series is to showcase a diversity of trans & non-binary experiences that tend to be under-represented in mainstream media & give non-binary subjects agency regarding how they are represented. It’s also an opportunity for me to document my friends & their unique style & point of view. As someone who identifies as non-binary it’s obviously a very personal topic for me but I wanted the photos to go beyond my own identity and really be a collaboration between me & the models.

What does our future hold?

Hi! I’ve been a bit awol due to the holidays + travelling around! I’m in London right now preparing the final details for a show I’ve co-curated with my pal Liv Thurley from The Coven,  Polyester zine, and Isabella Podpadec where we got over 50 international artists to each create a card for a new tarot deck we are putting together. 

Will be back with new photos soon but for now here’s some press/interviews about the show/project!

Unrelated but I also have an interview with Spindle magazine up this week, you can check that out here

& before I headed to London I made one last artist interview for 2016 with my dear friend Simon Fortin aka emotwink, you can check that out on the adolescent website here!

December update

Hi! Just thought I’d make a blog post with some updates from the last week or so.

First off, the third instalment of my interview series for adolescent.net is up, with my good friend & one of my favorite artists Brie Moreno aka boogerbrie - you can check that out here! I’ve been working with Adolescent for a while now and am now officially signed as a director for commercial projects with them so I’m excited to see where that leads me, I’ve been really enjoying making moving images these days.

in other video news, I finally got around to putting together some footage I shot almost three years ago for a little candy themed spec video for my commercial director reel. It was interesting to revisit the footage so much later, seeing how my work has changed but also what has remained the same over this period of time. anyway it’s just something cute and fun but you can check it out below ~

and lastly, I was also featured in Rookie mag last week, as my friend Rachel Louise Hodgson took some pictures of me in my studio (pretty much right after I woke up hence the sleepy vibes) when she was visiting from England earlier this fall. 

you can see those photos on the rookie site here!

Non-Binary Portrait series part 1

Hiiii!! I’ve been working on this portrait series for a while now, it’s ongoing but today I get to release the first part!! You can see a preview of it up on Broadly & the full series below!!

This is the first instalment of an ongoing portrait series I’m working on. My aim with this series is to showcase a diversity of trans & non-binary experiences that tend to be under-represented in mainstream media & give non-binary subjects agency regarding how they are represented. It’s also an opportunity for me to document my friends & their unique style & point of view. As someone who identifies as non-binary it’s obviously a very personal topic for me but I wanted the photos to go beyond my own identity and really be a collaboration between me & the models.
