Sawdon Smith reflects on his past lives and the roles he has accumulated. Aids patient to university professor, gender bender to porn star, go-go dancer to boxer/wrestler, drag queen to leather queen, son to daddy!
He dips into his dressing up box to create new and potentially different roles, all the time playing with gender, identity, sexuality, subjectivity, masculinity, and everything in between.
Award-winning British photographer Professor Richard Sawdon Smith is Dean of Arts & Media at Norwich University of the Arts, UK and a former winner of the National Portrait Gallery London’s Photographic Portrait Award. His photographs and writing are widely published internationally.
After delivering the first online festival in the world in May, attracting 80,000 visits, Head On Photo Festival returns with a printed festival of quality photography this November.
