Brides - 2019

While each photoshoot during a wedding represents one of the most important moments in the lives of those brides and grooms, they are also, ironically, some of the most discarded and forgotten photographs. In this specific series, I have decided to appropriate and re-read the photographs of the brides, because weddings focus on brides. This is a gendered sphere where women not only have to shine but also undergo a drastic transition of identity.

This series was selected by the editors to be featured in the Art Photography Awards 2019 Competition Gallery
