The leading photographer and MN2S PR client spoke with Wonderland about body positivity and inclusivity.
Photographer Rachel Sherlock spoke with Wonderland magazine for a profile based around her recent work and inclusive approach to portrait photography. Speaking about how the COVID-19 pandemic affected her career as a photographer, Sherlock said: “the pandemic has made me appreciate how heavily I rely on other creatives for company. Not being able to work together, chat together, problem solve together, felt like a real challenge. Standing in a room with a fellow artist and creating something from scratch is a process I’ll never take for granted again”
Sherlock went on to speak about the importance of inclusivity in her work: “Inclusivity is central to my entire portfolio. I’m not in the business of making anyone feel excluded or not enough, we all deserve to see ourselves represented in attractive, powerful roles. I really believe a large part of how we think about attractiveness is down to conditioning, if we only see certain skin tones or body types or age groups etc., in mainstream media, then that’s what we’ll consider beauty to be. Feeling attractive is a party we should all be invited to.”
