Publicity: Georgie Wileman
In the latest issue of Exposure, the CR column exploring exciting new photographers, Art Director Gem Fletcher looks at Georgie Wileman's work that sheds light on human struggles that often remain invisible
Exam rooms, clenched fists, distorted limbs – Georgie Wilemans This is Endometriosis captures the haunting reality of life with an illness that remains underfunded and misunderstood. The project traces the physical and emotional trauma of eight people and captures calm, private moments of survival.
In 2017, at the height of her own fight against endometriosis, Wileman turned the camera on her suffering. A picture of her stomach, scars marked by the date of her incision and the subsequent reopening, is completely disarming. This constellation of pain and need embodies the unforgiving reality of living on a conveyor belt for surgery and recovery – with no cure in sight.
