Kale is Not Disposable
Digital Photograph with Mixed Media

In the project I am focussing on a group of people that have become marginalized, ostracized and labeled as ‘throw away’ or disposable: Indigenous women. The high- way of tears is testament to this problem. In the news missing Indigenous women are described as drug addicts, sex trade work- ers, or Aboriginal; they are never described as women, mothers, sisters, grandmothers, students, or friends. My photographs are meant to show the real people behind the stereotypes and labels.
