Set in the crossroads of American cultures that exists in the eastern region of Texas, these narrative photographs depict a different take on women in fairytales and other fantastical works. Hijacking archetypes such as the damsel in distress, the subjects of these images defy labels and expectations by exhibiting agency and strength rarely seen from women in similar works. A woman in white defies the expectations of frailty to glow with determination. Another in black does beams with an almost dangerous sovereignty. More centurions than fanciful or fallen maidens, these women glow against a backdrop of brambles, decay and a sublime beauty that represents the dueling forces of establishment and progression.
