An exploration of identity and expectations specifically dealing with women
Anonymous 19th century tintypes of which I appropriate and alter. Each of these women is given a name commonly used during that era; thus giving each one a personal identity. I use color to create an emotional identity helping to extend the pictorial narrative. My interest is inspired by a need to represent the restrictive perimeters put upon women who are forced to fit into prescribed societal beliefs.
