I took these photographs for the obvious reasons: culture, style, jewelry.

In retrospect: I don’t want to become one of those foreigners who jumps on the sight of seeing exotic looking people.

I don’t like when tourists go around taking photographs without taking consent. However, I did take her permission and she was kind enough to pose for me.

let’s be a little thoughtful

28 03 2014

I believe that women (as portrayed in these art/graffiti works) aren’t just submissive characters  or victims. They are  capable of retaliating and standing up for themselves. The intention of such campaigns might be to raise awareness against sexual harassment but they just contribute in perpetuating the very notion that women are powerless beings. Women have been and are victims or survivors (the new way of putting it) of different forms of violence but we need images in our society that show that women can stand up and fight for themselves as well. Such campaigns should take a different strategy if they want to contribute to an environment, where women can (and have confidence to) stand up for themselves.
