2017 was a unique year. It brought a lot of new attention to sexual misconduct in America. We’ve started to have more conversations about the abuse of power and conversations about how/if we should hold people responsible for their actions. Throughout it all I have seen women in particular gathering the courage to speak up about sexual abuse and actually having their voices heard which hasn’t happened as much in the past.
I have been thinking about how I can use my photography to empower women who have overcome obstacles in their life. I’ve decided that in 2018 I’m going to embark on a new photo project called She Rose. It will contain photos of women portrayed as super heroes inspired by their personal stories of overcoming an obstacle. I want to give women a photo that shows them how strong they are. This project is still in progress so if you or a woman you know have a story about overcoming and want to participate in this project please let me know. I’d love to do a shoot with you! Looking for women of all shapes, sizes, colors and ages.
