Sober And Sexy presents as new way of looking at the problem of addiction, by taking an intimate look at the solution of Recovery!
British photographer Fiona McCosh is the brains behind the Sober And Sexy project. Over the last couple of years she has produced 2 calendars and exhibitions in Cape Town.
The photo shoots for the project feature a cosmopolitan mix of fascinating individuals, with widely differing backgrounds and stories drawn together by one powerful similarity, all are in recovery from addiction, alcoholism or one of the process addictions, gambling, eating or sex and love.
“Recovery can be a frightening place in the early days, it is hard to trust people, an emotional rawness seems ever present and often it feels as if life will always be this way. In time, with help, we can and do recover, in fact we thrive.” Says McCosh
“I really wanted to develop a project which could give something back, whilst illustrating our new found sense of adventure, fun – and trust in others.
