There’s a new art exhibit in Manhattan entitled Body Narratives. Body Narratives is an artistic portrait series that explores the mental, physical, and emotional experiences that shape us.
After working on a multitude of documentary projects, filmmaker Saul Sudin is now concentrating on honing the style of visuals that excite him, inspired by Film Noir and Chiaroscuro painting. In the process, he brings along the non-fiction interview approach
he has refined over the years.
For Body Narratives, Sudin interviews real people and crafts fine art concepts specifically tailored for them to model in still photography. The provocative intention of this series is twofold: to strip away the masks that we use to protect ourselves from others,
and to expose the shared narrative of struggle within us all. Sudin began the project in 2015 and is working on completing a book of the series.
Actress and model, Lydia Kalmen story is about having surgery for scoliosis and being a dancer. She still danced competitively after having the surgery and still to this day, but it limits her abilities and flexibility.
You can see all of the portraits at 326 Gallery located on 7th Ave between 28th and 29th street in Manhattan.
