Behind The Curtain

At Amplify Studio Gallery we welcome Johnny Lai Sang's photographic exhibition "Behind The Curtain".

Which is the result of the last seven years spent covering the various fashion-week events in Johannesburg and Cape Town. He was primarily shooting 'ramp', but he quickly became bored of limitations of photographers' pit at the end of the ramp; it was hard to get creative with his shooting. Since he was becoming a familiar face at these events, he eventually managed to get back-stage access. It can be quite hectic back-stage, but much more interesting and rewarding to photograph. Behind the curtains and off-limits to most attendees, the glam and chaos of fashion week are juxtaposed and the real magic happens!”
