Jenny Gage & Tom Betterton – Upstairs, Downstairs & Outside
Drawn to the mid-zone between documentary and fiction, the photographer-couple Jenny Gage and Tom Betterton have evolved a narrative style of portraiture that approaches and re-approaches their subjects from all angles – a style that has served them well in the field of fashion photography, where they have made great portrait-sequences of Kate Winslet, Salma Hayek and Uma Thurman among others, for major fashion magazines such as Vogue and Elle.
In Upstairs, Downstairs & Outside, the couple offers a intimate exploration of three women in various states of nudity, from photographs taken in and around the couple's Brooklyn home over the course of a year: Their body of work is a subtly provocative and sensual diary built of richly textured and evocative photographs.
In this beautifully designed volume, Cage and Betterton have forged an informal celebration of the nude form.
