W1 Curates presents UNDEREXPOSED ARTS ‘The Peckham Portraits’ - a collective by Franklyn Rodgers and Fraser James.  

UNDEREXPOSED ARTS is a registered charity, celebrating black British, dual heritage African/Caribbean and minority ethnic talent and promoting aspiration through national, arts-led interventions. 

Founded by celebrated actor Fraser James in 2008 with portraits created by award winning artist Franklyn Rodgers, UNDEREXPOSED ARTS in 2020 is driven by the core belief that positive representation inspires identity development, self esteem, courage and aspiration.

Central to the long term UNDEREXPOSED ARTS rationale is the commitment to inspiring young adults through the sharing of wisdom from our GEMS OF KNOWLEDGE hub.
