Digital photographs

Research images into ideas of self-care, femininity as simultaneously a beautiful yet questionable performance, and decadent, bewitching, monstrous glamour. Carol Dyhouse had stated in Glamour: Women, History, Feminism (2010) that ‘much of women’s social history is embedded in clothes, cosmetics and material culture’, and upon realising this I wondered if these traditionally feminine aspects of culture has typically been labelled as frivolous and unimportant because of their direct associations with femininity.

Thank you lovely Emma for being my friend and letting me take these photos of you at your place of work.
