Empowering Women: Visual Conversations is a photography exhibition highlighting the courage, strength, and determination of women in the local community, with the goal of sharing stories of resilience and inspiring other women to find their inner voice.

 

Supporting each story will be the artist’s reflection—an insight into the emotional and mental processes when photographing such raw and profound emotion. The concept is based on the premise that everyone has a story to tell, and it is the tapestry of these stories that make up our communities. Our stories have the power to transform our thinking and bring people of all walks of life together.

 

The project will include hero images displayed alongside projected video and audio. Written text will be displayed on plinths beside each hero image to complete the “conversation”. Online blogs will house the complete stories.

 

The title has intentionally maintained a level of both juxtaposition and harmony. The push-pull nature of a “visual conversation” echoes similar contrast to the strength in weakness that each of these women has shown. Meanwhile, the use of “empowering” here is homonymous—these women have both empowered themselves and will empower others. The exhibition plays on this dance of meaning even more by drawing on multiple sensory mediums in an effort to immerse each individual in the moment—first tragedy, then triumph as they journey through each woman’s re-telling.
