Sun 22nd April: "Ive Done Alright For A Girl" Stephanie Sian Smith

Here is Stephanie Sian Smith backstage at my LFW show where she kindly came to record the action, and above are her photographs in a solo show that has just opened in her local neighbourhood of Spitalfields.  "Ive Done Alright For A Girl" is a selection of shots curated by Ida Rhoda with an accompanying limited edition newspaper print catalogue.  The images of girls in ethereal costumes contain looks by We Are All In One, Yang Du, Mrs. Jones and also Stephanie's own feather headdresses which she makes alongside her photography.  The two disciplines have come together in music e.g press shots for Jessie Ware and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs for whom she has created single covers and the trademark stage costumes.  You will also know Stephanie's work if you read Elle as she has regular stories including the beautiful current "Closet Confidential" with Julie Verhoeven.  Head over to Stephanie's blog to join up other dots in the family tree of her photographic world and travels, having just returned from SXSW.
The English Restaurant, 52 Brushfield Street, Spitalfields, e1 6ag   Until April 29th
