This is a representation of sexual freedom and the link between that freedom and professional creative work. Following the Harvey Weinstein’s recent spotlight, Something had to be done, I had to showcase my feelings. There is still misogyny in the creative industry, The story was to portray the broken Hollywood that exists in the background of glamour, the robbed celebrities that often have lived behind curtains. This photoshoot is my manifesto to empower women. The sexual activities of a person should never determine their creative future. No one is tied to their sexual prowesses.
