Johanna Stickland’s "Women"

February 10, 2016

Johanna Stickland’s series “Women” is a comprehensive look at the female gender as a whole.

Often photographing the women nude, Stickland’s goal is not to sexualize the body but to present it in the way that appears honest — and synchronizes with how women see themselves. The women photographed are often in bedroom settings, and the images utilize natural light skillfully. The product is a collection that feels tender and honest, and intimate to its core.
