Patti Smith, Beautiful, fierce, and powerful, the Woman Warrior is a timeless archetype spanning world cultures, but she is by no means a mere urban myth. The modern warrior woman occupies an important place in today’s culture and is inherent within every woman in all our diverse forms.
“These photographs reimagine the iconic women of my last two decades in a montage. In an era when gender abuse is tantamount to our global conflicts, this is one of my portraits of Warrior Women.”
My artistic path is extremely winding and, I think, a slow one. Basically, I’m a portraitist interested in telling stories through the people I photograph. The stories I’m interested in are how women and men’s differing physicality has led to intense brutality towards women. Playing with sex roles to such an extent that the existing lines blur and the rules loosen up to free us all. The roles of our gods and goddesses and how we relate to them.
