Presentation of her 'Former Playboy Bunny' series and other works

Cost: Free

As a female image maker for mainstream publications, Robyn Twomey attempts to explore the feminine role in our daily image consumption. Playboy, the symbolic image of feminine beauty and American sex, is examined by focusing on the women who were a part of the empire more than 20 years ago.

Twomey's work asks: What visual conventions are allowed in the mainstream image space? What images are deleted? What space can be carved out of the traditional framework to address the underexposed diversity of women's roles, societal and personal constructs of identity, and the psychological intensity and contradictions inherent in all of us?

Expressions of identity, critiques of gender specific roles and an overall unsettling and psychoanalytical approach are themes found in the photographic portraits addressed in Robyn Twomey's work. Twomey has photographed for several international publications such as Time, Fortune and the New York Times Magazine, making portraits of news makers, business people, actors, musicians and politicians. She works and lives in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

One of Robyn's images is in the Show, chosen from nearly 14,000 entries by Natasha Egan, the Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. Her selected image is titled, "Former Playboy Bunny, Kelly Morgan, Lafayatte, CA".
