“She has been feeling it for awhile - that sense of awakening.
There is a gentle rage simmering inside her, and it is getting stronger by the day.
She will hold it close to her - she will nurture it and let it grow.
She won't let anyone take it away from her.
It is her rocket fuel and finally, she is going places.
She can feel it down to her very core - this is her time.
She will not only climb mountains - she will move them too.”
Her Time by Lang Leav
This body of work named ‘Move Forward’ intended to explore a personal journey of finding empowerment as a woman. Then I realised I was not empowered. I wanted to be. I wanted to be strong like a woman not as a man. I am on a journey. My images describe the beginning of my journey. A beginning that connects with the #metoo and Time’s Up movements. A beginning that feels it is time the world said hello to women as we are. A beginning that asks us to embrace our selves as the unique strong individuals we are.
