In the photographic portrait, empathy is an obvious component sometimes overlooked. In this project empathy has become a central theme. The motivation for the project comes from the notion that from a female perspective, a gaze is often critical, or assumed to be critical. The barer made to feel imperfect. The project is inspired by expressionism using either self-portraiture or the projection of intent onto the sitter. The photographers ambition is therapeutic; to promote positivity and hope.
