Angela Featherstone's curatorial debut is in the cross hairs of the image narrative captured by the photographers and the personal narrative as extrapolated by Featherstone and further expressed via an installation that underscores a chronological journey of self-discovery and self-revelation.
An accomplished model and actress, Featherstone's interest in photography began as a model when she worked with such greats as: David Bailey, Bruce Weber, Irving Penn and Piero Gemelli. As an actress, Featherstone is best known for her roles in The Wedding Singer, Friends and recently Beneath The Dark (IFC). Also an accredited writer, Featherstone has written for Time, Flare (Canada), Jane magazines and created sitcoms sold to Dreamworks, NBC and Sony.
In 2010 while reflecting upon childhood trauma, Featherstone was inspired to put together an exhibition that could shift that negative energy into a unifying autobiography emphasizing the enduring woman she has become.
The images from twenty famed and emerging female photographers engage in what Featherstone calls "the violent act of truth telling." In other words: fuck pretty.
The exhibit is accompanied by a musical score created by film composer Claudia Sarne (Book of Eli).
