Lilli Waters / She Raw / November 28 – December 15 2012


The She Raw project aims to document 41 everyday women within a state of fantasy whilst drawing directly from their real-life experiences.

This series of photographic portraits uncovers fascinations of the many engaging mysteries and hidden truths which lie, often undiscovered, beneath a woman’s skin. By drawing intimacies and challenges, self-reflection propels us into the untold relationships we have with ourselves and the women around us. This gives us further insight into the contexts of external beauties and internal sanctums.

As with ‘women who run with wolves’ these women roar.
