New york and Paris-based commercial and fine art photographer, Erica Simone, exhibits her collection "Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen" during a solo show at the Dash Gallery, New York City.
The art gallery will exhibit approximately 20 photographs of Simone literally exposing herself all over New York City. From the streets to the subway, and from Bowery to the Bronx, Simone publicly bares all, raising the philosophy behind "just being", as well as playing with the idea of 'counter-fashion' - that without clothing, people could not possibly socially interpret each other.
Each image tells a story and each story conveys a unique experience for the artist. Erica Simone's free-spirited philosophy, lack of inhibition and drive to express herself has made way for a provocative photographic project which raises controversy and questioning.
Aside from her Nue York collection, the Franco-American photographer has won various awards for her photography, including from National Geographic and PHOTO magazines and her work has been published in countless print and online magazines. Her passion for travel and humankind has brought her all over the world with her camera. Additional photographic works of Erica Simone may be seen here.
