Love Me reflects on the cultural and commercial forces that drive a global obsession with youth and beauty.

Over a period of five years Zed Nelson visited eighteen countries across five continents, photographing cosmetic surgeons, beauty queens and bodybuilders alongside everyday teenagers, housewives and businessmen.

In Love Me, Zed Nelson has produced a powerful body of work that forces every one of us to question our own place in a culture that compels us to constantly judge, and be judged, by our appearance.

The exhibition is divided into two parts with half showing at the Art Gallery and half a short walk away at Lighthouse Media Centre.

An Impressions Gallery and Ffotogallery touring exhibition in collaboration with Lighthouse Media Centre.
