    The Human Element: an Experiment with Our Bodies and Others

    featuring Marge Royston, Rebecca Rose and Tatiana Rathke

    Dates: October 6-November 8, 2019
    Events: Opening Reception October 5, 3:00 – 8:00 pm

    This exhibition is the first group show put on by this all female photography collective. The exhibition features portraiture,
    self-portraits, and fine art nudes all from their personal projects.

    This exhibition of each artist’s images has been shaped by their intentional time building community
    together as they’ve recently moved into this space, shared knowledge and taken the time to learn and inspire one another.
    The three met doing commercial photography work back in 2015 but Swan Street Studio is
    the first space they have created and built together.

    A short artist talk will happen at the opening reception and select prints will be available for purchase at the venue.
