photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by Jock Sturges titled Fanny, celebrating the release of his latest monograph of the same name published by Steidl. The opening and artist reception will take place on Friday April 10th, 2015 from 5–7pm. This exhibition includes both color and black and white images spanning over 20 years.

Fanny is an extended portrait of a young girl's transition from child to woman. Made over a period of 23 years, the images are at once beautiful in their detail of light and identity and also frankly anthropological in their descriptive effect. A naturist since birth, Fanny's comfort with nudity and her natural self has allowed Sturges to draw an engaging portrait of the evolution of a human being with few social distractions. His access to the girl's and woman's character is direct and fascinating. Long known for his extended portraits of children and adolescents, this work is strong evidence of Sturges' permanent commitment to the people in his work.” – Steidl
