The Different Faces of Women in our Communities
My photo essay is about the roles of women in Korea, a neighborhood of Santiago. My photo essay attempts to show how women occupy public spaces and the ways in which they move throughout their community. My photos capture brief moments of the daily experiences of women in their professional and social lives. Some of the women in my photos are captured smiling, facing the camera, and other photos are candid. I wanted to include both types of photos to showcase women in their natural settings and also have photos of women smiling or posing proudly in their professional and personal lives. Each woman captured here is contributing to her community in a unique way. Even seemingly mundane activities are essential to how the community functions. I chose this theme as my focus in order to demonstrate how women contribute to their communities in myriad roles.
