Growing up in South East London in the early 1990s as the daughter of a Nigerian father and a Jamaican mother, Nadine Ijewere was surrounded by billboards and fashion ads showing a uniform image of visual stereotypes that in no way represented the aesthetic variety of people in her immediate surroundings. During her youth, this lack of figures to identify with encouraged the photographer to develop her own visual world, which offers brightly colored counterexamples to identify with and hereby counters the staged perfection of models and the pervasive beauty norms they represent.
The photographer talks about her career, the development of her own visual language, and her personal experiences along the way with curator Felix Hoffmann of the exhibition Nadine Ijewere . Beautiful Disruption in the Artist Talk at C/O Berlin.
