I experienced sexual assault on a rush-hour tube at fourteen. I learned that it doesn’t matter what you wear, one layer or several. You can still be objectified. This is a fabric photography project, representing that despite being covered, you can still see the skin and the things that are desired. It is a story about being objectified and then taking back the power with the fabric.  The difficult journey of overcoming social pressures with self-love and acceptance.
