Allie Crewe You Brought Your Own Light

We were honoured that Allie Crewe was part of the Photography Movement exhibition and has continued to inspire us since with her powerful portraits and moving stories.

For the Calm Photography Movement 2017, she entered her image ‘The Moment she Removed the Mask’. Read more about her entry here

Aliie’s up and coming exhibition ‘You Brought Your Own Light’ is sponsored by Sparkle (the National transgender charity) and will be a nine-week exhibition at Manchester Central Library. It is a celebration of Allie’s groundbreaking and evocative work with transgender subjects.

Her work has been described as “Highly rated, sincere, poignant and classical…” by Magnum, and as “…a terrific body of work filled with heart and empathy” by LensCulture, her work was shortlisted for the prestigious Portrait of Britain award in 2017.

Her insistence that her work should remain authentic, creative and kind, in order to capture the truth about her subjects, was the inspiration for the title of her exhibition.

‘You Brought Your Own Light’ opens with an invitation only event from 6-8pm on July 26th, and will be free to the public from July 27th until September 29th.

If you’re in the area, be sure to visit this important exhibition filled with empathy and creativity. Thank you Allie for your work!
