This Is A Woman’s World is a conceptual photographic essay which focuses on women working in traditionally male dominated fields. The series aims to both celebrate and empower women by defying the gendered stereotypes of labor. I believe this message is more powerful than ever in today’s climate where, despite overwhelming displays of solidarity amongst women, challenges in the working world continue to manifest. These challenges include gender pay gap, sexual harassment and abuse within the workplace, exploitation of women of color, the perpetuation of unpaid domestic work solely being female as well as a myriad of other oppressive forces working against women.
The series also seeks to challenge the societal expectation of what a “working woman” looks like. Though models have always been used for creating idealized realities, by deliberately utilizing stereotypically attractive women, we draw attention to their femininity as well as create a strong juxtaposition against their perceived masculine roles. We thereby challenge the notion that a woman has to be plain to be strong; moreover, we acknowledge and celebrate the beauty of women in these industries—an attribute which is often perceived as detrimental to a woman in a male dominated field.
War Widow is a photo essay about a woman who loses her husband during WWII. Beginning with the notification of his death and documenting the resulting aftermath, War Widow deals specifically with those moments of isolation—where no one is watching – when the emotions of our War Widow are on the surface and very evident to anyone touching her world. The essay broaches the difficult subjects of loneliness, denial, vulnerability -- and even a bit of madness – all of which are interspersed between moments of strength for her family.
