"More Than the Image" is a photo journalism project with the aim of capturing and sharing images of women as we see ourselves to counter balance the pervasive stream of unrealistic (and often unsustainable) images of female bodies ever present in advertising and popular media. We want to build this body of work and share it as a way to be a part of the conversation about women’s bodies, agency and self perception. During the photo session the participant is asked to list five words to describe themselves or the experience.
We invite you to join us. Reach out if you would like to be photographed. We also welcome further thoughts about the project, process, topic, etc. through written submissions. Let’s all be a part of this conversation!
we want to hear from you!
