Spotlight On: Nastasia Alberti's Intimate Portraiture
'Spotlight On' is our features series – short, snappy and shining a light on a few of our favourite things. This week, Jade French picks the beautifully intimate photography of Nastasia Alberti. If you'd like your work to be Spotlighted email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nastasia Alberti is a self-taught photographer from Paris, based in London. Her work focuses on female subjects, using only natural light and DIY development to produce beautiful pictures. Her work conjures up worlds where woman can be vulnerable, brave and dominant, looking for their raw emotions: life and death, fear and joy, resurrection.
We love her photography, and as part of our collective Nastasia's work has appeared at many of our exhibitions and events – including PEAKS: Body on Me, which she co-curated.
Nastasia Alberti's work has appeared in art books like Let’s Start A Pussy Riot and magazines such as The Observer. Her work was chosen by Tuner Prize winner Gillian Wearing to appear in her exhibition “My name is…”. Alberti’s photograph of Vogue writer Karley Scortino was displayed on a billboard in Hackney for over a month. She is currently working closely with Annin Arts Gallery. Clients include the band Ghost Culture, with solo shows taking place at Peaks pop-up gallery, with the art collective Not So Popular.
