About The Event
Local photographer Abbie Trayler-Smith, has produced her first book 'Kiss it!' and is holding her first launch party here at Liznojan. Second launch party will be in London, so if you're local, now's your oppourtunity.
Documentary-style photographs spanning the teenage and early twenties of one subject, a young woman called Shannon, are interspersed with items from Abbie Trayler-Smith’s youth – memories relating specifically to her struggle with being overweight as an adolescent. ‘FAT!’ is emblazoned in Tipp-Ex across her old school book, following a photo of a plus-size, teenage Shannon trying on a dark-red prom dress. Kiss It! explores the ins and outs of a fat life through a neutral lens, by combining the dark moments of Trayler-Smith’s younger years with over a decade of pictures following Shannon’s experience of growing up as an overweight person.
