Photographer Samantha Everton presents ‘Indochine’
Acclaimed photographer Samantha Everton presents “Indochine”, a dynamic exhibition series which explores the intersection of Western influences and Eastern traditions, as part of this year’s Head On Photo Festival. Informed by the artist’s multi-cultural upbringing, with three adopted Asian siblings, “Indochine” depicts a woman navigating the conflicting cultural pressures of the East and the West. Exuding visual luxury and vivid sensuality, the artworks plunge the viewer into a colour-saturated dreamscape. The series explores the encroachment of Western fashion within Asian cultures and the struggle for authenticity amidst contemporary influences.
