See Me, Consider Me, I Won’t be Erased is a series of photographs made in response to the objectification and marginalization of women that is so prevalent in our society. We are so often seen through the prism of the male gaze or we are not seen at all. By creating thoughtful and intimate portraits, I ask the viewer to look at and consider these women as individuals, each with their own lives and intricate histories. This is my attempt to take control of the narrative.
“Some women get erased a little at a time, some all at once. Some reappear. Every woman who appears wrestles with the forces that would have her disappear. She struggles with the forces that would tell her story for her, or write her out of the story, the genealogy, the rights of man, the rule of law. The ability to tell your own story, in words or images, is already a victory, already a revolt.” ― Rebecca Solnit, Men Explain Things to Me
