Model your bras for breast cancer

Making national flags from bras

I’m constantly in need of volunteer models to create more national flags for my Bra Spangled Banner series. I make these flags by taking photos of my volunteers wearing as many bras as they can bring, using a modified document scanner. This generates very high resolution images showing all the details of the fabric and the flesh. Hundreds of scans are then assembled to create these iconic national flags.

Grab a friend and ALL your bras and swimwear and come on down to be scanned! I particularly need many yellow and green bras (which are really hard to find!) but any colours will do. I’m also making similar works with pants so bring those too if you’re feeling brave! Anybody is welcome and if you have loads of colourful bras and swimwear, or lots of tattoos or colourful hair or anything to add to the mix then please come along. It’s fun!

The underwear scanning takes place in at my Brighton studio and also at my exhibitions, wherever they may be. Please email the studio for more details and to reserve your place.

10% of sales benefit breast cancer charities anywhere I sell these works.
