Juxtapoz Magazine - Sotheby's Hosts "My Body, My Business" Curated by Pussy Riot Creator, Nadya Tolokonnikova

My Body My Business is a Sotheby’s auction curated by Unicorn DAO co-founder and Pussy Riot creator Nadya Tolokonnikova, with proceeds from the sale benefiting reproductive healthcare organizations, including Planned Parenthood. This sale includes a variety of works from 32 women. 

Our alumni, Lindsey Byrnes, is one of the artist selected by Nadya herself as Lindsay is an American photographer and creative director known for her work in the music and entertainment industries. Her career began while working for Thrasher and Juxtapoz magazines. Byrnes quickly established herself as a sought-after photographer in the music industry, which led her to directing music videos, designing album covers, and going on tour with acts like Paramore and others. 

“Black and white photograph of a woman swimming in a pool,” Byrnes says of the photo. “The work is an exploration of the complex emotions that arise in the aftermath of a painful break up. A tribute to the power of the human spirit, and a reminder that even in our darkest moments, we are capable of finding strength and resilience within ourselves. A reflection on the universal experience of heartbreak, and the emotional journey that we all must take to heal and move forward. The act of swimming, of moving forward through the water despite the weight of sorrow, is a powerful symbol of the human capacity for endurance and perseverance.”
