S.H.E. (Support Her Empowerment) is an ongoing photographic project started earlier this year and slowed down due the Covid-19.
In all the great civilizations, the relationship between man and woman has always been based on the principle of hierarchy, as man is considered stronger than woman, and on the principle of division of labour, with the woman who takes care of the house and grows and educate children while man must work to support children and home. S.H.E. aims to raise awareness of the gender equality issue. There have been huge changes for women but still far from a gender balance.
The project will be a collection of female empowerment stories containing also faceless portraits, which I consider essential because they invite the viewer to step into the image.
