These Latinx artists dicuss subject and photographer

Interview between Blair Cannon and two up-and-coming young Latinx artists, lberto Vargas (A) and actor/artist Andrea Granera (B), discussing the roles of photographer and subject.  This improvised shoot is a project about how being a subject can be a performance in itself—it points to a confidence in us that we may not have in our everyday lives and...

Just, Our Girls

Who are the girls you see? Pure, dolls colored pink, white dress with lace, unicorn, quiet, shy, obey… Who are they? In here, only ‘our’ girls exist. Just, ‘our’ girls stand in front of you. An insight on the women doing ‘unconventional’ jobs for our gender by illustrator by Handi Kim

International Women’s Day

A Boss Not A Woman

I have always been surrounded by people who believe that feminism has no place in modern, Western society; many of these people believe that the enfranchisement of women has seemed to cleanse away inequalities which still exist. This belief is often laced into comments which will niggle into conversations about feminism: “women have the vote,...
