“Ouroboros” dissects femininity, mortality, and the profound yet vilified bond between women and nature. The historical manipulation and suppression of feminine symbolism reveals a deeper societal discomfort toward the cyclical nature of female experience. My photographic work challenges beauty norms while simultaneously confronting darker facets of human experience. By inviting viewers to contemplate the interconnectedness of life, death, and transformation, this project celebrates the resilience of women in the face of adversity.
