Event description

Description

Out of the blue, she asked me, “Do you like the way your vagina looks?”

A friend of mine, she thought there was something wrong with hers. It wasn’t the way it was supposed to be. And there was nothing I could say to convince her that she was normal. That totally pissed me off.

Over the course of ten years, I photographed over 100 vagina portraits. I shot from the point of view reserved for gynecologists and lovers (sometimes). The images are square and a little larger than life to openly extend the invitation to look. There were no stylists, no details about the model to set the mood for fantasy or to objectify us—just the everyday vagina in plain view. Each strikingly unique.

vagina vérité is a collective mirror of our individuality, expressed through an endlessly interesting aspect ourselves, the faces of our vaginas.

It raises a lot of questions.

It’s an opportunity to have conversations we don’t usually get to have. Out loud, or privately. While viewing, or later. Or not. It’s personal, yOur experience. Come by and see what you think, and feel.

It’s for my friend. I don’t believe I’ve properly answered her question yet.

It’s for, and about, women. Everyone who is interested is welcome.
