Deconstructing Ideals

Next Generation is an annual collaboration with London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. The 2019 August / September issue of Aesthetica marks the sixth instalment – featuring seven new talents entering the photographic sphere.

Ryanna Allen combines a love for documentary-led portraiture and fashion, exploring the female experience. Her specific colour palette and choice of subject matter circles around the existing stereotypes of women by displaying intimacy and gestural performance. Her work deconstructs he role of female beauty ideals within society and addresses the ways in which fashion is used as an accessory to this.
