London-based filmmaker and photographer Louis Edwin Fry likes serious artistic projects and conceptual images, able to stir emotions, but also requiring a certain amount of attention and discerning abilities.
After studying photography at Camberwell College of Arts he spent a year at the Academy of Visual Arts (HGB) in Leipzig. His portfolio boasts various photographic series, such as “Facemask”, a collection of portraits in which he “tried to capture and record both the physical state in front of the camera and the emotional state during the photographs’ creation”. Louis Edwin Fry has an eye that’s not only put to use in static images, filming is another passion of his.
His latest documentary project is called “Temnyy Girls”. Currently in post-production, it was shot in the area of Moscow and includes face to face interviews with lesbian girls forced to coexist with the harsh anti-gay laws promoted by Putin and the resulting amount of discrimination and exclusion. “Presently we are looking for final funding to complete the last interview translations”, explains Louis.
