I first transferred to Cal Poly in Fall 2017 with only a series of images of women in water. That series was to show women in a vulnerable state of not knowing what lies in our future as women. Fast forward to our current state of 2019 being a woman in today’s society still sucks, as people are still stripping women of their rights.
As my women series grows and blossoms into something more, I want to promote feminism with the women I have photographed in my time at Cal Poly. These women I have photographed have all impacted me in positive ways and have shown me that there is still color and light in the darkest of days. As women and others in this sad society have to still fight for their rights, I hope that everyone can still find some light or color in their life that keeps them going.
