A Photo Series on the Struggles of Femininity
by India Skye
I decided to do this series on the difficulty girls go through on being bullied into their femininity and the toll it takes on them. Throughout history, we see women being robbed of their choices to express themselves in the way they want to. I chose to have prairie-style dresses to express the history behind the struggle. I hope it shows how difficult it is for women to express themselves in the way they want to.
MEET THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
India Skye is a 17 year old photographer from Los Angeles. She started to do photoshoots when she was in middle school as a fun hobby, but when she got into high school, she started to take it more seriously. She set up a photo studio in her room so she could begin to do more professional shoots! She mostly does stylized shoots with women and girls. In every shoot she does, she tries and have a clear message behind every photo. She absolutely loves to style every shoot from “head to toe” and picks out specific vintage clothes for each model to create a persona for that shoot. She hopes in every shoot she does, she can make the person she’s shooting happy and feel beautiful.
