Feminine Tools is a series of images based on products that manufacturers have designed specifically for women. The products I have researched and photographed include gardening tools, DIY tools and more. I have specifically found and photographed these tools as I wanted to illustrate the feminine appearance the tools have undergone, due to manufacturers and advertisers believing women will be more likely to purchase them. I have approached my project from a woman's view. I wanted my work to reflect the opinion that women do not need delicate tools to be able to carry out DIY, however if a woman prefers the appearance of the more feminine tools then she has been given the option to purchase them.
