THE WOMEN

Trying to explore my female identity and nature, as well as the roles that society has imposed on me because of my sex, I took photos of my friends, relatives and my own self. Through this ongoing project, I want to illustrate the current female portrait.

 

The women I choose to photograph are between 20 - 30 years old, just like myself. This age is creative, adventurous, amorous but also the age that most women should make important choices concerning their lives. It is a time when they are asked to leave the girl they were behind and meet the woman they are about to be. Some of them are already women, some others never stop being girls. This state of transition and melancholy is what I want to be conveyed through my pictures.

 

Strong, emotional, lost and beautiful: these are The Women.

"Women, I saw you on a train heading to some other places.

Women, on the balconies looking into the void with a gaze of forgetfulness."
