Taboo

We live in a society where there are recognised ideals and standards that set out to define beauty or what we collectively describe as beautiful. Women in particular are expected to conform to these norms and standards. This means that many of the various physical and mental characteristics or phenomena that occur naturally among women, are not accepted and are considered taboo.

As a result, many women try to modify or rectify their behaviour and appearance to hide these natural properties, hiding their unique or unusual traits.

With this series I show that the women are beautiful even without the need to disguise their true selves and that by promulgating the image of themselves that is or was more commonly withheld, especially showing it off, they actually express strength.
