Inside Of Edginess - Photo Exhibition

  • ThePlace2BE 16 Auf der Lyss Basel, BS, 4051 Switzerland (map)

ThePlace2BE, an interdisciplinary venue where art, bodywork, and creative sexuality meets invites you to a unique event.

The ”Inside of Edginess” is the inaugural exhibition from PureBeauty Photography, the artistic creation of Carl Emerson’s photographic exploration during his interactions with the International travelling model community over the last 6 years.

The portfolio is designed to be deliberatively provocative and challenge some of our assumptions around perceptions of the female form. At the same time, it is an opportunity to celebrate the natural beauty of the body through our mental filters and emotional reactions.

Through artistic poses, challenging close ups and free dance expression the viewer is taken on a trip of self discovery while reflecting personally on how close to the edge these prints really take us

About Carl Emerson:
A photographer for over 30 years, Carl came late to portrait photography as he had found it too challenging to be confronted by someone on the other side of the lens. Running at his fears, he started with some simple portraits before being fully confronted when persuaded to attend a nude course in Prague by a good friend.
Once started, the interest grew and now he loves how empowering it can be for his clients to release their inner potential through portraits, moving to a higher level of confidence, self awareness and strong personal leadership
