Hi everyone. This is Daphne  Van de Velde @daphnevandevelde and this is my third day for Focus: series at @fotofemmeunited.⠀
In my work I make visible the cracks in the seemingly flawless, perfectly moulded skin. I explore the encounters between inside and outside, the shape of in between.⠀
The project Dialectic of Skin is about the increasing intrusion of the outside world upon us. The fitted exterior has become so predominant that the ‘self’ no longer has any space.⠀
The skin is tearing open.⠀

ICTUS⠀
exposed roots look so vulnerable because they actually belong underground. I gave them a skin to protect. ⠀

EXPOSED⠀
Alienation portrayed by a stoic face, stripped of emotion, on one side. And a rough, intrusive manipulation of the face on the other. Here I’ve photographed the model according to the rules of the perfectly realised classic portrait. I break roughly into this portrait with a crude talons, as if I’m breaking into the tradition of portrait photography.⠀
⠀
Award winning picture, I won the second prize for upcoming talent at the Fotofestival Naarden last summer (Dutch Masters & Marvelous Misfits).⠀

So much has happened between originally interviewing Jennifer Adler (she can now be found at @mrs.rabe_takes_pictures on Instagram) and publishing this article that it’s important to mention it considering the nature of part of our discussion below. In this space of time, her original account @photos_by_frau_rabe has been permanently removed by Instagram. Upon learning that she could make a request to have her data sent to her, she was informed that they erased everything. Forever. This has been a shocking piece of news, because I consider Jennifer and her work to be respectful of their “guidelines”, no matter how ridiculous these guidelines may be. While some of us are really fighters on this matter and pushing those guidelines back in their faces, I always thought of Jennifer as being more of the hippie/peace/love one of the pack.⠀

What do you all think about censorship in social media in terms of art and the female body? ⠀

The Los Angeles based photographer Alex Prager (@alexprager) won the Foam Paul Huf Award for her series "Compulsion" almost a decade ago and now she has an exhibition at the Foam Gallery in Amsterdam showing work from the "Silver Lake Drive" series. Her work is staged—cinematic and colorful, drawing upon visual references from noir film and popular culture. You'll find aesthetic inspiration from the likes of Diane Arbus and Cindy Sherman where women are the protagonist, striking and powerful. The exhibition will be on view at Foam until 4 September.⠀

In the past month we've given you some statistics on the  situation for women identifying people working in photography in terms of lack of exhibition opportunities, pay gap, gallery representation and work.

Today I want to talk about an issue that must be raised, that of intersectionality. If we look at this beautiful graphic made by our visual designer @maggiebovary we can see that not only is this an issue for women. The small percentage of work and exhibition opps are primarily given to white women. How can we change this? For starters, ACT.

Speaking of acting, we have opened up the possibility for women identifying photographers to submit their work on our platform! Check the link in our bio! 🔥

At @fotofemmeunited we are committed to battling this statistic for you lovely queens EVERYWHERE by featuring your work on our platform and social media, bringing awareness to these injustices as well as empowering all women everywhere to be free 👑 
How are you doing your part?

Hi! My name is Lena @lenanicholson and this is my 3rd post with @fotofemmeunited for Feminist Friday! These two images were shot for two brands, one fashion (shot at NYFW), one beauty (@fempowerbeauty). They represent moments where I was able to "go rogue" (as a colleague once referred to my burst of inspiration and have to capture the image in my mind). There isn't always that flexibility in advertising, but I grab onto those moments whenever I can. Working with good people in creative teams, I've found a career where I can still be an artist every day. What is your story? I've always dabbled in various mediums, but photography emerged as my passion around the age of ten. Going into college I had the mindset of only wanting to work as a fine art photographer. After college l began working at an advertising agency and found that I can be just as creative making work for brands. It's a middle ground and has challenged me to improve in art direction and work with teams, where as with my personal work I often create alone. #fotofemmeunited #ffusubmissions #lenanicholson #womeninphotography #nyfw #beauty #advertising #fempowerbeauty
Hi! My name is Lena @lenanicholson and this is my 2nd post with @fotofemmeunited for Feminist Friday! These photos are from two trips to California. I keep an ongoing film diary, shot specifically with my baby - a Canon F1 that I inherited from my dad. These are two images that represent the influence of cinematography on my photographic work. What are you experimenting with next? With my ongoing film diary, I'm capturing how I pay close attention to the details of life - spaces, compositions, people...these images become a physical memory bank and record the trajectory of my experiences and growth. This work is also heavily inspired by films I've seen, and has been the bridge to experiment with video. In the past year I have shot 5 short films, directing one of my own, and am continuing to experiment with merging the two mediums. There has become more fluidity in my photography work as a result. #ffusubmissions #feministfriday #lenanicholson #womeninphotography #film #cinematography #dp #palmtrees #motion
