Martha Ackroyd Curtis

A ravishing collection of images of the exquisite realm of queer bloom. An awakening of the senses, taking a glimpse through collections of photographs like stills from classic cinema. From intimate photography ‘The Her Series’ and classicism to live performance on stage and street photographs showing fierce strength, might and power from Victoria’s Pride.

The series of works are from the pages of Decadence a new published volume of photography that covers the oeuvre of the photographer and her subject. Reading the pages you will also visit poems that add insight into the mind of emotional intelligence and the feminine lens.
