These Femmes Futuristes are viewed as if with x-ray vision. Their patchwork interiors hint at what they have lived, their silhouettes offer clues as to how they have proceeded through time.

Each Femme Futuriste begins as a small handmade collage, combining my photographs with ephemeral images from our shared visual culture, and sometimes with miscellanea or paint. The collages are then scanned at a high resolution so they can be produced as large, archival pigment prints.

These figures suggest possibilities and inspire a jettisoning of self-doubt. They encourage a transformation where qualities and attitudes are chosen freely, independent of societal and familial norms and pressures.

The Femmes Futuristes point toward new opportunities, bold authenticity, and a sense of adventure. May we all move forward with them, piecing together the best remnants of our personal histories and living our lives with flair and without apology.
