On the bill: “Beautiful Disruption”, the very first solo exhibition by photographer Nadine Ijewere at C / O Berlin

On View presents images of remarkable exhibitions

THE FRESH PERSPECTIVE and the imaginative eye of Nadine Ijewere produced beautiful and new images, drawing international attention to the young photographer in the making. Known for her striking fashion portraits, Ijewere became the first black woman to photograph a Vogue magazine cover when she photographed the cover of British Vogue in January 2019. Her first institutional exhibition and her very first solo exhibition are currently on display at the C / O Berlin. . “Nadine Ijewere: Beautiful Disruption” features around 80 images and three films that highlight her process, which includes working with a large format Super 8 film. The title of the exhibition, says Ijewere, “speaks to disrupting this ideology that has existed in the industry for so long and to do so in a beautiful way by photographing and celebrating different backgrounds, different cultures and this diversity.” Born in South East London, Ijewere’s family is Nigerian and Jamaican. She continues to live and work in London where her friends, family and people like her inspire her work and the types of images she wants to see in the world and in the fashion industry in particular.
