GCDS 2021 Calendar Viva L’Italia by Nadia Lee Cohen

Nadia Lee Cohen’s photographs and films, heavily inspired by Americana and Britain in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s, are veritable visions of saturated, surreal dreamscapes. Drawing upon the duality of the female form, fine art photographer and filmmaker Lee Cohen locks our optics upon the twisted paradise that lurks within her mind.

She explores the paradoxical standoff between strength and fragility within womankind. Lee believes in living within her work, and has gained notoriety through her quirky colourful online presence on social media; in which she plays dress up and curates interesting imagery of her day to day inspirations. At just 22 years old Lee’s work initially gained recognition as a successful entry for the National Portrait Gallery’s prestigious Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize. In 2014 Procter & Gamble sponsored Lee to travel to America to shoot. This turned out to be the birth of her most successful personal series yet ‘100 Naked Women’, which she continues to develop between Los Angeles and London.

This year, all the calendar’s proceeds will be donated to MERMAIDS, a British charity that supports transgender, nonbinary and gender-diverse children and young people, as well as their families and professionals involved in their care.
