We are complicated, us humans. And for too long have we tried to box people into categories because it makes us feel safe.
Women, especially, have spent centuries having to uphold rules. If you are a business woman, you are frigid and don’t want kids or love. If you are a sexual woman who embraces her body, then clearly you are sleeping around. If you have love handles you better fix those or don’t show up to the beach. If she sleeps with a man too early then there is no way he will take her seriously.
Like you need to have permission to be a woman.
Well, fuck that.
A woman can be sexual, and also selective on who she sleeps with, as well as be an amazing mom and a beast in the workplace. She can be a sensitive artist who is very sexually adventurous, and also really loves animals. She can be a teacher, a poet, a dancer, a cancer survivor, a single mom. She can be straight. She can be gay. She can be bisexual. We can be whatever it is that is our truth.
I want to photograph your truest self. So when the world is trying to make you feel like you aren’t worth you can look at these images and be reminded of your truth. Reminded and amazed of your own, beautiful truth.
I want to start a movement of women no longer asking permission to be as sexual, creative, strong, and incredible as they want to be. I want to see it spread.
