I’m a female student fashion photography in London (University of the Arts) and my final master project is about raising awareness for the low conviction rates and the lack of attention for sexual harassment.
Since my course is fashion oriented, I am focusing on the myth that clothes can be seen as an invitation for any form of sexual harassment. I highly disagree with this. With my project and photo series I want to make my statement clear. Clothing is never the offender.
My motivation for this project is that I also get a lot of unwanted sexual attention when in clubs or on the street. Thankfully it never became violent, but I understand how it can easily lead to that. We should be free to wear what we want. Nothing is ever an invitation.
I am looking for people who’ve experienced any form of sexual harassment who would be willing to help me with my project. I would really like to talk to you and hear your story and possibly make a photographic portrait of you. This can all be anonymous if you would prefer that.
I am looking forward to your responses. Please don’t hesitate to contact me, even if you just want to know more about this project.
