Cherry Au Hon I showcases 100 portraits of Queer people from around the world
London-based photographer, Cherry Au Hon I, just launched their newest exhibition People, Place, Take Up Space. The intimate project showcases 100 portraits of Queer people from around the world, capturing the individuals in their own unique spaces. Au sets to emphasize the relationship between environment and subject, finding the unbounded spaces where you can be your raw, authentic self. Presenting beauty within the community through a familial lens, this much-anticipated project (beginning back in 2015) proves evocative, homely and essential.
Honed into the London sphere, Au questions – and reacts to – the loneliness a big city can provoke, and how the community has shown up throughout history, despite the fast rise and falls of these spaces (and their funding). Radiating strength, this exhibition should be on all of your ‘do not miss’ lists, so – if possible – get down to the big smoke between today and the 12th of February.
