Inspiration: Cassidy Paul ‘Girlhood’

I’ve always been slightly obsessed with the colour pink. I seek out my childhood and regress back to it quite often. I stumbled upon these photographs and thought they were beautiful. I love the colours, the context and the minimalistic quality.

Girlhood

This series explores issues surrounding young women in their transformation from adolescence to womanhood. It seeks to address ideas that begin at birth and continue throughout their adult life, such as misinformation on sexuality and their own bodies, to gendered expectations of what’s ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. A mixture of still lives and self portraits, these images become isolated in a hot pink, hyperbolic world, setting out to represent this constructed culture for young women.
