This is a series of images of modern women acting out the appropriate scenes. By choosing photos of actual real people, I am forcing the viewer into the situation, making it more immediate -I hope- and am inviting the viewer to consider the choices made by Esther, Ruth, Rizpah, Tamar and Zipporah (etc).
The incidents described often highlight
the bravery, originality and determination which our female forebears wrought. In our patrilineal traditions, the female leaders are sometimes overlooked. This is what I am trying to redress and spotlight in this project.
