You are invited to the opening of Traces by Stephanie Galea on May 24th 2019 at 19.30pm.
This series of work depicts female bodies set within a natural landscape. Almost like landscapes themselves, the bodies are incredibly detailed - freckles and even tiny hairs are visible in the photographs. The viewer is almost compelled to trace these forms as the sense of sight stimulates our sense of touch, possibly evoking a memory.
Stephanie Galea is a Maltese fashion photographer and visual artist based in London. A Central Saint Martins (UAL) graduate, Stephanie is a regular contributor to prominent fashion publications including Vogue Italia, Vogue Portugal, Vogue Arabia, Harpers Bazaar and I-D amongst others and her clients include Vivienne Westwood, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Dunhill, Ted Baker and Kate Spade.
Stephanie creates narratives through fashion imagery- her inspiration often drawn from people in her life, scenes and feelings she remembers growing up in Malta. Instead of focusing on capturing beautiful women in unrealistic and dreamy settings, her work often includes a collaboration with real people in mundane situations or traditional settings. Stephanie has exhibited her work on numerous occasions across London, Malta, Dubai and Washington DC.
