WOMAN UP is a series created to depict how women are trained from a very young age to be as visually pleasing as possible. We are expected to look and behave in certain ways. We are pressured/encouraged to strive after the idealised appearance (of the day) as seen in conventional/generic representations of female beauty. But we are being lied to! In addition to photographic manipulation, the models we see on magazine covers have usually had many interventions, the camera lies – it is not possible to look like this naturally! Inspired by the incredible diversity of women and their individuality, WOMAN UP challenges this and channels misogyny into potency, celebrating being a beautiful, empowered female human with a role to play.
