Girls in Pink Series

This series investigates young women, all born around the year 2000, as a contemporary generation of neoclassical muses. They portray a radical, yet neutral demeanor around sexuality and self-acceptance. They dwell in self-ownership, supported by social media communities and body positivity movements of the last five years. They have compassion for themselves which extends into each other. This body of work applauds the diverse, bold, positive women I see growing up around me. These women will inherit our shifting system of gendered existence and likely finish breaking it.
