Image Shown: We Alchemize
The Feminine is a photographic project defining the feminine, both literally and figuratively. By defining it loosely and poetically, I seek out all its nobility as well as entrapments, keeping the feminine grounded in contradictions rather than fetishizing it to mythical often dangerous delusions. No photograph or title claims to be factual. It is therefore a project of reality and dream, fact and fiction––a mash from which I distill the emotions, the toil, the beauty of the feminine. Traveling to Chandeloa, Rajasthan, India for nine days and using only available light I consciously resist the often heightened romance of India in photographs, and illuminate the feminine experience within the place of mundane, earthly living. By occasionally placing the subjects at the edge of the frames, I portray the marginalization of women in society here and across the globe, in spite of everything that is changing for us.
