This project is dedicated to all of us women who have been giving to our families, jobs and society all our lives. Often, we feel unacknowledged, unseen, unheard and unappreciated. This in turn so eats into our sense of self-worth, diminishes our confidence, lowers our self-esteem that it does not even occur to us that we need to start unconditionally loving and accepting ourselves.
For ages, in a patriarchal society, older women have been overlooked. Society does not recognise our beauty, our wisdom, the sacrifices we have made and the incredible lives we have lived. We are under-valued and unacknowledged. This is partly because we, as women over 50, do not see our own value.
It was after I turned 50 that I began to see this, and so grew the belief that this needs to be changed. One photo-shoot and one woman at a time.
My vision is to photograph 50 women in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond, to give them the gift of a transformative photo-shoot experience that will help them to unhide themselves, be seen in all their glorious beauty, be acknowledged for their generosity, be heard for their wisdom and then be remembered long after they are gone by their children, grand-children and descendants. . This will be the legacy they leave behind. Seen and remembered as strong, confident, powerful women who fully celebrated their talents, creativity, resourcefulness, strength, compassion and generosity and served as role models to all the females that came after them.
I would love to honour, share and celebrate the journey of all of you young-at-heart Wonderwomen 🙂
