Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen is an upcoming exhibition of photographs by New York and Paris-based commercial and fine art photographer, Erica Simone. From the streets to the subway, and from Bowery to the Bronx, Simone publicly bares all, raising the philosophy behind “just being”, as well as playing with the idea of “counter-fashion” — that without clothing, people could not possibly socially interpret each other. Opening on 14th April at the Dash Gallery, 172 Duane Street, New York City, the exhibition will run for two weeks.

Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen Photographs by Erica Simone

New York and Paris-based commercial and fine art photographer, Erica Simone, exhibits her collection “Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen” during a solo show at the Dash Gallery, 172 Duane Street, New York City 10013, April 14 to April 28, 2011.

The art gallery, run by media mogul, Damon Dash, will exhibit approximately 20 photographs, sponsored by Uptown Fine Art Printing Studio, of Simone literally exposing herself all over New York City. From the streets to the subway, and from Bowery to the Bronx, Simone publicly bares all, raising the philosophy behind “just being”, as well as playing with the idea of “counter-fashion” — that without clothing, people could not possibly socially interpret each other.

Each image tells a story and each story conveys a unique experience for the artist. Erica Simone’s free-spirited philosophy, lack of inhibition and drive to express herself has made way for a provocative photographic project which raises controversy and questioning.

“Brave, humorous - but sexy, Nue York is a unique collection with wonderful energy. Erica Simone is a rising star in the photography world,” says Michael Klug, publisher of Whitewall Magazine.

Since 2005, Simone’s photographs have been exhibited in galleries and exhibitions all over New York City as well as in France, Germany, Cambodia and Lithuania. Aside from her Nue York collection, the Franco-American photographer has won various awards for her photography, including from National Geographic and PHOTO magazines and her work has been published in countless print and online magazines. Her passion for travel and humankind has brought her all over the world with her camera.
