SHANIQWA JARVIS “THIS CHARMING MAN”

“This Charming Man” is the debut solo show from acclaimed international fashion portrait photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis.

From 5 – 19 May 2011 at The Londonewcastle Space,
28 Redchurch St. E2 7DP

The Londonewcastle Exhibition Space is proud to present the first major solo show from photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis.  ‘This Charming Man’ is a selection of intimate portraits inspired by men who have interested and affected the artist.  This collection serves as both an honest and intimate portrait of these creative and passionate men, exploring their living and working environments.

Between 2007 and 2010 Jarvis relocated from New York City to Los Angeles and finally landed in London. Throughout this period, she began to document young men who have sparked a certain curiosity in the photographer.  Shot in London, LA, and New York these portraitures are the direct result of conversations between these inspirational men and Jarvis. The images explore how these “Charming Men” have shaped their creative and living environments within the various confines of dwelling spaces.

“That bit of tomboy in me, who gravitated towards a myriad of stylish and confident men in my life, naturally pointed me as a professional in a direction towards men who mirrored this image.  As the images I photographed began to shape their own story, the more aware I became of the connection and innate desire to feed the voyeur in myself with “day in the life” reportage photography. ‘This Charming Man’ has enabled me to open up my subjects, my photography and myself. My hope is that it speaks to you, the viewer, as well.” – Photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis
