Rhiannon Schneiderman: Lady Manes

May 23, 2014


Daytona Beach photographer Rhiannon Schneiderman defies gender norms involving grooming and beauty in her self-portrait series Lady Manes. Partially inspired by the concept of a man’s facial hair serving as a declaration of his masculinity, Schneiderman challenges with a tongue-in-cheek reverse, posing proudly with various stylized “manes.” Simultaneously promoting body positivity while poking fun at the establishment, Schneiderman encourages women to take pride and be empowered by every part of who they are.
