:: dangerous women::

This project is inspired by Audre Lorde’s, “Uses of the erotic: the erotic as power”, this collection is meant to ignite the collective power and resistance against western ideologies about eroticism and pleasure by capturing moments when perhaps the most unlikely chore, routine, hobby or job, can be experienced seductively, powerfully & erotically. the women i photograph and myself, push beyond the boundaries of what is considered erotic to beyond what Lorde calls, “plasticized sensation” and through my camera lens explore and aim to capture the “measure between the beginnings of our sense of self and the chaos of our strongest feelings”.

When I speak of the erotic, then, I speak of it as an assertion of the lifeforce of women; of that creative energy empowered, the knowledge and use of which we are now reclaiming in our language, our history, our dancing, our loving, our work, our lives.
