The Rise of a Woman

Essay 138 • Mar 8th 2017

The Rise of a Woman is a story that represents the power of the female in the brightest light. We still seem to have an archaic view in media where women are often misrepresented as physical objects. We need to change that. I want to embody the resilience of women through this series, with color, elegance and confidence. Since we seem to still be fighting some of the same battles that were happening in the 1970's, I think it's important to rise above with a positive message. The Rise of a Woman = The Rise of a Nation.

Desert born and raised, fashion photographer Natasha Wilson has had a mutual passion for art & travel her entire life. Inspired by culture and each location’s color palette, she hopes her unique perspective flows vicariously through her photographs, and transports the viewer into a dream-like world. Her process usually includes painting her own hues over her images, reducing the color pallete to a cohesive blend of hues.
