Eleven Fine Art Jane Hilton
Jane Hilton

26th Apr - 25th May 2013

Hilton first encountered Madam Kitty’s Cathouse in 1998. In 2000 she was commissioned by the BBC to make ten documentary films in this brothel and the Moonlite Bunnyranch, both situated in Nevada, USA. In 2010 Jane decided to return with her plate camera for her latest exhibition and accompanying book, 'Precious,' a collection of intimate nude portraits of working girls.
 
Although prostitution is one of the oldest professions to have been made legal in Nevada, it is still not socially acceptable. This new work gives the viewer an opportunity to leave behind any preconceptions. The women are from different cultural backgrounds, ages and body shapes which also challenge the traditional idea of beauty.
