Beauty 24

“Has Oprah seen this?”
This is one of the most common questions Director Steve Gatlin recieves at Q&A sessions following screenings of Beauty 24. Find out why!

Synopsis – On September 1, 2005, photographer Steve Gatlin embarked on a challenge to travel the country for 24 days, each day visiting a new state to take just one photograph until he filled a single roll of film. To complicate matters each photograph was taken at night, outdoors, using time-lapse settings, and the models were all in the nude.

From model no-shows, to Hurricane Katrina devastating three of the cities he was scheduled to visit, the crew encountered numerous obstacles to overcome in order to keep the challenge alive.

Follow Gatlin on his epic journey and witness first hand the models’ candid interviews after each shoot as they examine his interpretation of beauty, and also how issues of self-esteem, confidence and more are defined in American culture today.

Featuring an incredible, 24-song soundtrack as diverse as the models Gatlin photographed and the terrain he covered, Beauty 24 is a cross-country adventure like you’ve never seen and will undoubtedly agree is  “an evolution in beauty and deconstruction of stereotypes.”
