In these photographs, I observe women- how they present themselves and how they are viewed in public. These images were made between 2009-2015, mostly in three cities: New York, Bilbao and Paris. Through fashion, body language and actions (whether waiting, walking, thinking or looking), women communicate vulnerability and purpose. The women in these images move about anonymously, often focused on their interior world, apart from others. Some of them are “flaneuses,” strolling and open to the possibilities that this implies. The urban locations they inhabit include mass-produced images of women, sometimes on kitsch objects, or advertisements or cheap art in flea markets. These pictures within pictures, some from previous eras, provide an interesting counterpoint.
