Untitled 12, from The Birthday Party series by Vee Speers, 2007.
Paris-based photographer Vee Speers opens a one-person show of all new work today at the Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh, County Cork, Ireland. Lens Culture is pleased to present twenty images from the new series — disturbing portraits of children dressed up for a bizzare costume party, which curator Peggy Sue Amison describes as “a collection of astounding portraits with an Alice in Wonderland edginess.”
The color-tinted Polaroid images are printed life-size, and achieve a stunning effect. See them in person if you can. The exhibition runs through July 29.
