Through a mise-en-scene self-portraiture series, Made In The Shade depicts characters in Mid Century Modern settings, mirroring an era that was aspiring for change.
The carefully staged scenes attempt to challenge female stereotypes and offer a powerful lens through which the viewer contemplates these women in a non-objectified way.
Through a female gaze, the work questions how society shapes human beliefs and ideologies, and overall, reinforces the importance to continue the action for gender equality in an era informed by #MeToo and #Time’s up movements.
