A new art exhibition in Hackney is open to the public with photographs depicting women in a new light from all walks of life.
Every photograph taken during the past six months has been taken in the streets of the borough by French photographer Aurélie Lagoutte.
All models in Lilly’s Birdcage have been cast by the French photographer in Hackney too.
The photographic exhibition on female nudity aims to present vulnerability as strength.
Prior to taking up photography, Aurélie had wanted to pose as a nude model but rarely appreciated the end result.
