Fra Beecher [b. 1986] is a life model and photographic artist. She looks and is looked at.
Fra models for amateur and professional artists, at art schools, colleges and for community groups, she is also a co-founder of a life model collective. Fra studied BA Photographic Art at the University of Wales, Newport and taught Photography at Stroud School of Art. Her current work brings together both her creative practices - modelling and image making.
'Body of Work' explores the physicality of the life model, using a variety of different approaches. There are six chapters within the project. Each image represents a female life model, who, seated or standing, has held a pose. The work challenges the misconception that female life models are passive objects, by offering an alternative perspective on the experience of the models themselves.
