Celebrate International Women's Day with a free portrait from a leading photographer
We’ve teamed up with 3 incredible female photographers to open a pop-up portrait studio for International Women’s Day at 55 Duke Street. In collaboration with The Photocopy Club, we’ll be shooting the women of London and filling the space with their portraits.
Appear Here's community numbers over 200,000 people with ideas, but over 70% of them are women. We want to celebrate the women behind these ideas, who are powering our cities and making our streets more diverse than ever. So join us anytime between 11am-6pm to be part of the exhibition and take home a free portrait.
Meet the photographers
Originally a menswear designer, Flora Maclean first made headlines with her, “Every Player Counts” series documenting the culture of the often-ignored female footballers' community with a softness and intimacy that have since become her signatures. Inspired by people, always an advocate for women’s and minorities’ rights, she went on to work with Women’s Aid and Refinery29 on a series dedicated to survivors of domestic abuse, and continues to challenge stereotypes through her photography. https://www.instagram.com/floracmac/
Katie Silvester is a film photographer based in London. Silvester strives to bridge the gap between commissioned and personal work by breaking down and utilising the genuine intimacy of friendship on set. Drawing inspiration from her time on the road, and the freedom and spontaneity it affords, she captures the natural beauty of her subjects and explores their connection to the world around them. https://www.instagram.com/ktsilvester/
Milly has developed a dark yet beautiful aesthetic. She's been praised for her depictions of the natural and often raw female body. She uses Instagram and Tumblr to display her acceptance of the natural female body, and to speak up about the limited visibility of diverse female experiences beyond that of slim, white, cisgendered women. https://www.instagram.com/millycope/
