Out of stock
These days, there is a large number of women who, after a separation or divorce and after a certain age, choose not to have stable relationships again by decision and conviction. This circumstance represents a complete rupture with the social and biological values developed throughout history. After investigating women and their historical social role, how stereotypes have been born and evolved, and their current relationship with the postmodern consumer society, I developed this project through the portrait. I shot middle-aged women, separated and without a partner for at least 5 years, and asked them to choose an object. Any object. Then I devised a portrait of them as that object, which did not have any special value for them. Using the object as a portrait of these women is an analogy to the objectification of women and reflects the absurdity of this term. Shooting both separately allowed me to jump from "object woman" to "woman and object," as these two concepts seem to have been together for a very long time. I wanted to pay special attention to the women that represent a new role in the personal and social environment. I believe that detaching from everything that has traditionally been linked to women represents a progress in the true independence of women.
