Title: Residual Reflection
Description: Residual Reflection is a series of photographs that deconstructs the spectrum of the female experience. The composition of discarded art, scraps and found objects within the photographs reflects the complex, often ominous, process as girls become women, as well as the way their worth, identity and bodies have been distorted and devalued. The female form has often been taken for granted, exploited and sexualized by advertising and the media, and women are often flooded with messages that reduce their worth. By portraying the female figure as well as juxtaposing it with language and imagery often targeted at women, Residual Reflection provides a voice to women whose bodies and experiences have often been trivialized beside their male counterparts.
