Vee Speers (born 1962 in Australia) lives and works in Paris, and the red-light district of the rue St. Denis formed the backdrop for her Bordello series. Deriving her inspiration from the decadence of her surroundings, Speers shot in real bordellos, creating images “between genuine emotion and something more staged…a shift between the real and the surreal.”
Vee Speers’ most recent work is The Birthday Party, a collection of portraits of children inspired by her daughter’s birthday party. Having observed children playing at being adults, Speers imagined what characters they would create if they pushed their role-playing to imaginative extremes.
