Breaking down the dominant discourse of how to behave in society, By Us For Us observes how communities are formed through taking up space, opening conversation and building off one another to form a collective novel experience. Inspired by gentle black and white movements of dance, interaction and individuality represented in works of Imogen Cunningham and experimental brands such as Paloma Wool, the creative director brings together a team which equally contributed to accessing their truth in unfamiliar interactions, movements, bodies, and expressing what that means to them personally. The poses embody the contradictions of both freedom and restriction, community and individuality, thus, allowing the viewer to either relate or distance themselves from the images that appear before them. Most importantly, this series is challenging the viewer to personally question what community means to them, cultural differences and narratives that form as a result of this.
