Albina Leka

'The Working Sisters'

This autobiographical series consists of five images, which depicts young women in rural areas of Northern Albania, reflecting on a hypothetical version of the self. By using traditional marital clothing and acting out agricultural chores, I create a persona that best represents my understanding of the cultural expectations of women in contemporary society. Coming from that region, the catalysts of the photographs are a mixture of my experience and imagination, portraying identity and place. The photographs add a sense of nostalgia when taken at low light and are intended to reference 18th and 19th century realist paintings of working women. The images evoke gender inequalities within Albanian culture, something that I have experienced but also escaped from, therefore leading me to take the photographs with a Western gaze.
