Fragile is a photographic project that aims at female empowerment, seeking to combat the gender bias that continues to exist with women, as well as their valorization.

It is being developed in partnership with APAV to commemorate its 30 years of existence, and will result in an exhibition that will be present in several cities in the country.

We will start in Lisbon, in April.

To develop this project, several women were invited, all physically and emotionally different, so that it was possible to have a representative image of all women.

Women were chosen because they have some impact on society, from their profession to their body structure or because they are transsexuals.

This project emerges as a call for attention to society about the way women are seen and treated in different situations. Its main objective is to make us (society) reflect and change attitudes and thoughts.

Art is more and more a way of shouting what moves us, and we are all aware that this is a theme that still needs to be talked about and SCREAMED, in order not to be forgotten. Do you want to SCREAM and defend the cause with us?

Your contribution will help the entire team to be able to express, through the exhibition, what they stand for. What perhaps you also defend.
