When I was a young girl, I watched a lot of movies. While men were portrayed as virile,
sexy women were referred to as Real Tomatoes. Marilyn Monroe was often referred to as a Tomato.
I decided that when I grew up, I wanted to be a Real Tomato so much that I ate tomatoes every day. This ritual has continued into my adult life. A man could not call a woman a Tomato today without controversy.
However, I still fantasize about being the fruit that Hollywood desired.

A Visual Conversation about Bodies
“THE BODY ISSUE” 
published by
Hatje Cantz





A visual dialogue about bodies and how they are perceived in media has been undertaken by the femalephotographers.org collective. As the group’s first publication, The Body Issue addresses the depiction of bodies and the perception of them; at the same time, it also launches a series of photo books.

Founded in 2018, femalephotographers.org will regularly publish photography books devoted to issues, while also organizing companion exhibitions under its own direction. The goal is to increase the visibility of female photographers, since women are still underrepresented in the art world.

femalephotographers.org is aiming to change this situation and calls upon women to reinforce their positions collectively. The Body Issue also invites guest artists to publish their work in the collective’s books, so that they can literally experience solidarity among women.
