'Who's That Girl?'
Fashion is a cultural practice with strong significance for women. I have employed fashion style photography as a vehicle to explore issues of gender identity, femininity, womanhood and difference in the context of Turner Syndrome (TS). Short stature and infertility are key features of this little known and rarely talked about genetic condition. It affects 1 in 2500 females in diverse and complex ways. Whilst emulating fashion photography, this work interrogates issues such as physical appearance, difference, fertility, motherhood, sexuality or self esteem, which are pivotal to the context of TS, but also common feminine experiences. Models and photographer have closely collaborated, drawing on the shared experience of living with TS.
