She Is

What is femininity? What does it look like? How do we perceive femininity in our culture? How do you capture it? While constructing a photographic exhibition to study the idea of femininity, I took a survey from people both anonymously and directly, asking for one word that they think describes “feminine”, or “femininity”. From this, a book concept was born from the words and thoughts collected through people in my community. 


She Is is a portrait of Femininity.

Does She stand alone

Free

Or is She the compliment

 

 

to Masculine

Is She defined by Her beauty

The curve of Her body

Some call her weak

Fragile

Maybe it's Her confidence

They fear

Or maybe

She is simply

a thought

An idea

Constructed by generations

 

Past

Perhaps

She is a goddess

Soft as flowers

She is 

            Me
