[P]resented by Curated By Girls, Laurence Philomène’s first solo exhibition takes a look at her ongoing series ‘Non-Binary Portraits’, a body of work that champions representation of trans, intersex, gender-fluid and non-binary youth in the photographer’s signature pallet of vibrant colours and pop aesthetics.
In tandem with the theme of accurate representation of non-binary folk is the act of celebration which emits from Philomène’s photographs. With hair, make-up and styling stemming organically from the subject themselves, Philomène’s camera lens acts as a candid observer to capture the beauty of feeling truly oneself with full agency and autonomy.
We caught up with Laurence below to talk about non-binary, trans and intersex representation in the media, the importance of prioritising disenfranchised voices, and the misunderstanding of non-binary gender identity being a “new” thing.
The exhibition will run at CoGalleries in Berlin from May 19th – 31st, you can find out all the info about how to attend here. Follow Laurence on Instagram @laurencephilomene.
