What defines intimacy in the 21st century?

For the next project at Campbell Works, Completely Naked has invited 100 selected international photographers to submit over 500 images in any size and format that, according to them, portray 'intimacy'. Having in common a new approach to photography and a fresh vision of themselves and their practice, they have become part of an ever growing un-scripted 'movement'.

Images of highly personal, intimate moments have become part of our everyday. Digital photography and the internet are dissolving the relationships between photographer and performer, model and muse, and with it a new generation of photographers are redefining our relationships to each other.

The project started in 2004 as a research study into contemporary photographic practice and quickly grew into a huge online gallery containing over 1000 images, and continues to grow daily. Gathering together for the first time, a generation of photographers whose images are re-defining contemporary aesthetic, this installation explores both the visual intimacies portrayed and the physical intimacies of the photographic prints, breaking the so convenient but so fastidious un-reality of the online galleries.

Completely Naked is a London based artistic partnership directed by Pau Ros. Specializing in interactive installations, they explore live arts, visual, digital and time-based languages and develop ideas based on a curiosity for human behaviour from individual to collective responses. Completely Naked is an initiative aiming to provoke the promiscuity between the arts and the audience.


This exhibition is part of Photomonth, taking place in over 30 galleries and spaces in East London during October and November 2005
