Instagram takeover: Bex Day

Next on our Instagram account we welcome Bex Day, April 2017.

Bex Day is a 24-year old photographer originally from London and has published work in AnOther, VICE, PORT, Twin, Vogue Italia, and Dazed and Confused to name a few.

She has been nominated for the Magnum Graduate award 2016 and has lectured and exhibited at the Vogue Italia Female Gaze exhibition, Cambridge University and the Hepworth Gallery, Wakefield, and Recylart in Brussels.

Bex’s style captures unique locations and unusual subjects in off-guard moments. Specialising in intriguing characters and street-cast subjects, her interest lies in gender, identity and subcultures – from transvestites to bikers and so on. Her unique vision can blend flawlessy fashion and documentary aesthetics in a new, refreshing mix.

Bex casts her subjects not by size or gender, but according to their unique look, personality and an emotional connection towards them.

Preferring to shoot in film, Bex veers away from retouched, digital imagery in favour of the honesty and realness that comes with analogue. Her work is challenging and raw, capturing individuality at its best and most endearing.
