A FEMALE PERSPECTIVE IN PHOTOGRAPHY by

Barbara Galvács

Ladylike - Photo Project

Dear Ladies,

Do you fancy to join a photo project about Femininity? Creativity is a great tool to balance our femininity.

I am voluntarily looking for models for raising awareness for endometriose. I aim for capturing the beauty of a body that has to go through so much. Are you in? Contact me for details.

You are very welcome, if you like to contribute and open up and show the powerful inner strength that fights the pain of this sneaky illness. By showing your fragility, you represent the inner power of yourself at the same time.

The plan is that I photograph ladies who have endometriose, in their bedroom around the bed itself, in the style of Greek statues. I think of nudes in matching light conditions, but some textiel are also possible, I do not want to show any sensitive details. 

It is all secure: we will choose the photographs right on location, so that only the ones, that approved by the person also, stay with me for final work to get the wished end result.

I have made some sample shots, of myself already, to be able to show an example of expressing what I aim for. I have also made some moodboards of photographs already made before, to be able to explain it more in detail what I have imagined, that is like a mix of these photos all together. 

I would like to show how beautiful the body is, that keeps on struggling, hoping to cope with it all along. I imagined the serie originally without showing the faces, just as the samples I collected and made. The positioning itself will remain flexible to agree on. If the model prefers so, I will be glad to cooperate on this detail.

It might be that the Endometriose Stichting helps with some contacts, but I am not yet sure about that and I have to see what they say. In the meantime I do my part and make this page as well as start the conversation about it with some ladies, who might be potentially interested. 

I hope to recruit a minimum of 4, hopefully 8 ladies for this project. The final result will depend on the model as well, I am flexible on quite some details, I only aim for the same bed and light setup for the whole series, the positioning of the model is flexible, to be able to adjust it to the needs/ requirements of the person also.

In case you are interested, please let me know: I will email you with samples I've made and will need you to email me a photograph of your bedroom, can be with your telephone also, so that I plan appropriate light setup accordingly: barbar@galvacs.com.

You can already find some work here on this website, within projects - endometriose.

Thank you so much!

Hoep to see you soon in person,

Barbara
