"It’s apparent to me more and more that we can not sit idly by and wish that the world would be kinder to women. From the recent Kavanaugh appointment to the #metoomovement we are reminded of our place by the powers that be. Hope is an ode to the strength of us, to our fury, to our conviction. She represents the power of us, that cannot be diminished or pushed off. Even stripped bare, she stands in the face of adversity. Hope is the hero within all of us." - Tracy Piper
These fictionalized portraits are pieced together to create someone we all know. It could be your neighbor, friend, sister, child, me or you… belittled, told we were less than, ostracized for our differences. In this oversaturated world where we are told who to be, how to look, what to do, these portraits are here to tell you that you can just be you. You are enough. You are worthy. You are loved.
