Feminine Rituals ( Preview )
Just finished my final project for the semester a few days ago! It’s a series of video performance pieces that explore the contemporary standards for women and how they shape ideas surrounding the feminine identity.
Here are a few screenshots from the videos. I’m working on getting them ready for online viewing right now, will update when they’re available!

I put elmer’s glue on myself and then sprinkled the glitter all over it until covered, let it dry, and dusted away the spare pieces. it didn’t hurt too much to peal off, but it was in a small quantity.

Well I shoot with a Hasselblad 500cm and a 4x5, but those cameras work for my process and style of shooting. I like slowing down, taking my time, and shooting with film.
The type of camera you buy should relate to what and how you want to shoot, so without really knowing that I can’t offer you that good of suggestions!

This series explores issues surrounding young women in their transformation from adolescence to womanhood. It seeks to address ideas that begin at birth and continue throughout their adult life, such as misinformation on sexuality and their own bodies, to gendered expectations of what’s ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. A mixture of still lives and self portraits, these images become isolated in a hot pink, hyperbolic world, setting out to represent this constructed culture for young women.
Shot with a Hasselblad, Portra 160.
