This collection of photographs dates to the beginning of my journey as a visual artist in the early 1990’s.
After a few years as a photojournalist I began experimenting with creating my own narrative in photographs I made with women. As a self-taught photographer, I was shocked when I realized that in studying centuries of art so few of the sculptures, paintings, drawings and photographs of women were made by women. And the spirit of being a woman outside of the male gaze was sorely lacking. CS Lewis wrote, “ we read to know we are not alone.” Late in the 20th century I also felt we needed to see to know we are not alone. That was what inspired this collection of images.
