The Female Gaze
This series explores what it feels like to inhabit the female form. All of us are wrapped up in fragile bodies subjected to abuse and annihilation. But we also possess creative minds which can empower and enlighten others. As we females stand on the shoulders of the countless brave women who have helped pave the path towards our own insight and successes, let us remember that we are much more than our bodies. And we will not be contained.
Anchoresses were female ascetics who chose to be walled in to churches so they could lead a life of deep prayer. While this practice was done during the middle ages, I question the ways in which women wall themselves in by choice or not in our modern world. These images are a reflection of this question.
