The Castle Window
The Castle Window is a short 4-image series featuring four different women standing in the window of a castle brandishing 4 different historical or mythological weapons: the flail, sword, ax, and bow. Each image is titled with a position of power. The Castle Window seeks to showcase feminine strength and fierceness, while dressed in fashions that allude to a non-specific fantastical history. The Castle Window is my feminist project, pulling together feminine themes of tradition and softness (the flowing fabric and dresses) with severity, and strength (the weapons) as well as authority (the castle).
