Tousled hair, turquoise eye shadow competing with freckles, a gap between teeth that turns a charming smile into a work of art, a long-stemmed hibiscus flower resting against a fragile, androgynous body: British fashion photographer Nadine Ijewere upends received beauty ideals in Ugly, her 2017 photo series for Vogue Italy. In doing so, she shows how attractive imperfection can be. Ijewere’s work series counter the staged perfection of models and the pervasive beauty norms they represent. In contrast, the photographer offers brightly colored counterexamples to identify with, all telling universal stories of human charm and beauty. Already, her work is regarded as a corrective in fashion photography, representing a diverse global public. This novel approach has brought her commercial and artistic success and recognition. C/O Berlin is the first institution in the world to host a solo exhibition of the 28-year-old photography pioneer, in Nadine Ijewere . Beautiful Disruption, which features roughly eighty images and three films. Curated by Felix Hoffmann, C/O Berlin.
