Women have been particularly subject to photographic abuse, especially in travel narratives often through objectifying or exoticizing women’s bodies. In contrast, these photo-collageseek to honour women’s everyday life, and promote reflection on women’s presence and absence, visibility and invisibility. They recuperate what is too often invisible—the unremarked but remarkable work of women, in this case, the washing of clothes.

Fierce Women contrasts historical images of Moroccan women who face the camera boldly with a single crouched woman in the Berber market in the Ourika valley in 2016. This photograph advocates drawing strength from the past.
