Rora Blue captured our attention with her deeply honest photo series “The Unsent Project”, a collection of unsent text messages to first loves we talked about before in a previous post and chat with her. Her work also accompanied us to two editions of OFFF at Barcelona and Antwerp -with a photo expo-, having a big welcome from the visitors with her natural stunning pieces and the tote bags we made as a collab with this great and lovely artist. Now Blue has launched a new meaningful series, “Handle With Care”, aiming to capture the effect of sexist commentary.
“Some phrases are things I have been told at different times during my life, others are comments that other women have submitted to me,” she explained. “The photos aim to capture modern day sexism and some of the pressures that women face in society today.”
“I just wanted to open it up to other women to connect and share their experiences. I hope it encourages men to get involved in the conversation as well. One guy told me I should be slapped for speaking up about sexism. In order to really achieve full equality for women, everyone needs to take part.”
“Handle With Care is a series of six photographs that explore sexist comments that are used frequently today. Some of the phrases are a recount of personal experiences and dialogue, others are comments that women have been submitted via social media. The photos aim to capture modern day sexism and some of the pressures that women face in society today.”
