I continue to explore the highly restrictive perimeters put upon women to fit into societal dictates and how a hidden underlying strength pervades. Even though these images are appropriated from tintypes dating back to the late 19th century when women’s lives were truly restricted, many of these restrictions continue to the present though not as blatantly expressed. The word shadow can have many meanings. It can be “ a dark image made by a body” a “feeling of gloom”, "something without reality or substance” or in this case, to observe, take in, to change, to take shape, gather strength and to CAST their shadows.
