Friday Quote: Wolfgang Tillmans

Posted by (PF) at 18:11 ...

“The initial question everybody asks when confronted with a photograph is, who is it? Where is it? When was it made? How it was taken? A photograph is always seen through its content and rarely trough its presence as an object in itself.”

Wolfgang Tillmans

Moira Lovell – The After School Club

“My work is concerned with British youth culture, feminism and the relationships between Dress and persona, and identity and performance. ‘The After School Club’ initially involved documenting clubbers at School themed nightclubs across London. I witnessed young women flaunting themselves in revealing uniforms, competing for their male counterparts attention. Their masquerade captivated me and I decided to put their nightclub persona to the test by returning them to their school gates.” – Moira Lovell about her series ‘The After School Club‘.

Moira Lovell, born 1977, graduated 2006 with an MA in Photography from the London College of Communication. Moira Lovell lives and works in London.
