For my capstone, I will create six photographs that will conceptually display moments in the contemporary era where women are still silenced. To create these pieces, I will be using a Canon DSLR camera and printing the images onto sheets of paper of multiple sizes. The six works will be inspired by Barbara Kruger’s feminist themes along with Cindy Sherman’s feminist themes in her artwork, specifically in the traditional societal expectations of women. The project's outcome will be to represent the challenges that women must still confront and inspire change in the current society to aid women's advancement as equals.
