Emily Walder, 'Her Obscenities were Never Obscene'

2017, Lambda photographic print on Hahnemühle photo rag, 59.4x89.2cm

Walder's work critiques the culturally sanctioned stereotypes of femininity, alongside the performative element of gender. It is the juxtaposition between beauty and tragedy that forms the framework for her characters. Paying homage to classic screen goddesses that have represented the changing image of the perfect woman over the decades, and the ultimate suffering they often endure.

Self-proliferation through social media platforms is another major influence on this collection of photographs. The portraits have been censored and filtered through the layering of multiple devices- resembling an overexposed portrait of a wanted person printed to the size of a paste-up poster.
