My body of work consists of a combination of small series. As with most of my series, these photographs focus on a young girl, Bianca. At a very early age our gender is defined by our family and the world, as we learn to become a part of it. We are put in dresses with pink bows. Does a girl love these outfits or does she love her family telling her how pretty she is in them? Bianca is a vibrant, smart, creative girl, who although she is “dressed up”, plays just the same as the boys.
