“Photography and Feminism have one thing in common: the look.”
SAN MIGUEL DE TUCUMÁN, ARGENTINE
MARS 2021 | 50 PORTRAITS
We are Sheila Becker, Julia Bronstein and Nina Sosnitsky. Thanks to inside out project we've made a collective intervention which has fifty portraits of woman from Tucumán and Buenos Aires, whom in different ways they've participated in the feminist movement throughout the years. We decided to call the project "Nuestras Miradas", Our Gazes.
Photography and feminism have one thing in common: the look. But not any look, it's a critical and transformative one. As a photographer you observe the object to be portraited, the same way a feminist watches the world that surroundes her, every detail is importante, makes the picture itself at the end and in the case of feminism, the system surrounding us. Once you start paying attention, it's almost imposible to avoid sharpening it through the time, there are some that say that inside our looks you can watch the details that makes up our stories. These are the faces of some of the woman that fight on a daily basis, feminism crosses our lifes and we carry it everyday. These are our opinions about feminism, about our society and about our world.
Social justice is our statement. In out country the fourth wave got here and dyed us all in green, had us screaming for legal abortion, safe and free for everyone. Along a new generation, this wave made us question in which system do we wanted to live in.
We fight for an equal society, with no femicides, no gender violence, no sexism, sexual education, and simpathy to one another.
We are from Latinoamérica, people that walkes without legs, as Residente says. After so many time fighting, a few months ago we finally got the legal abortion. An historical moment that filled out hearts with pride
