Force des Femmes
During my time in Benin I met some remarkable women. Hence I decided to photograph them in their village. As a tribute. Giving them the opportunity to step up - and in the spotlight. Showing their strength. 'Force des Femmes.'
Powerful imagery is the key to succesful communication. Though what these wonderful and unqiue portraits meant for these women was priceless. In case of Antoinette, the image shows how she really feels: powerful and ready for action.
“Women push men. Men help us also. But if we women stand up, things happen.” ~ Antoinette, local seller in Benin.
