Gathered in black in the downstairs of Shoreditch gallery, Blackall studios, waiting for the opening of Mari Sarai's NAKED exhibition. Ten interns, all assigned jobs, raring to go.
Covering the walls of the spacious white exhibition room was Sarai's intimate photography. A personal insight into moments of peoples lives you might otherwise never see. Confidence, arrogance and an expression of femininity come through in her work. Sarai's aim was to photograph nude women to capture their femininity and take away from the commercialism that's occured for models. Working with the likes of Janice Dickinson, Alice Dellal, Amy Winehouse, Daisy Lowe and Liam Gallagher, she's known in the industry for her unique and personal style of photography.
Guests included Calvin Klein model Aaron Frew, Annette Heart (who modelled in Mari Sarai's book NAKED) and close friends and followers of Sarai.
