Real, Elegant Period features a series of photographs that dive into a topic and conversation that is often ignored, avoided and stigmatized, our periods. This natural process that occurs in our bodies has been described as shameful and a punishment that women somehow deserve.
Real, Elegant Period seeks to change that narrative. Through still and moving poses, a sense of grace, resilience, and elegance is drawn from the dripping blood in the background.
While we are shedding a different type of light on the topic, we would like to stress that not all women are educated on ways to safely deal with their periods or have access to basic toiletries and sanitary goods. We have found some organizations that are doing amazing work by bringing up the conversation, educating women and providing sanitary goods to women across the world.
