Photography and statement by Faith Stellmaker
Sugar by Faith Stellmaker critiques the experiences and social expectations of women in the contemporary moment and explores the ways in which girls present themselves. With feminism recently coming to the foreground of political and cultural debates, these images capture the unapologetic camaraderie shared between females in both the public and private space. They aim to ‘turn the tide’ against labels, stereotypes and the negative connotations that come with ageing by celebrating women and highlighting the female form.
These images have recently been exhibited at the ANU school of art gallery foyer in the exhibition, Everyone Looking at Everyone.
