Photography 101 – Women’s History Month

This assignment was my most controversial. That isn’t saying much, because none of my other projects were controversial at all.  The assignment was to do a set dedicated to Women’s History Month. Most people took pictures of women in their family  or their girlfriends. I decided to do something a little more political and photograph action figures. The concept was that this would expose to people how, ostensibly strong, women are presented to young boys. Some people who didn’t understand the concept thought my work was inappropriate. By the way, yes, the toys were all mine, leftover from my childhood. They’ve since been sold in a yard sale.
