Draw the Curtain is a visual exploration of identity at the crossroads of what is seen and what is hidden. Photographer Charlotte O'Shea and Stylist Nadia Dahan produce a playful commentary on the role of the hidden in an age of over-exposure.
The trope of the curtain speaks to privacy and the border between the familiar and the unfamiliar, and informs here an inquisitive take on the agency of the individual: Can we ever hide ourselves entirely? Is there a way back from total exposure? What´s the role of the body in understanding our own hypervisibility? What are we, when no one is looking?
