Photography series I worked on for showcasing the beauty of independent and powerful women. In my home country Japan, I see women trying to be what is considered 'pretty' in society, and those expectations toward women was a big part of the reason I wanted to leave my home.  As a form of beautiful art, I wanted to express different shapes of beauty in humans, and I asked my models to make their body parts angled, overlapped and twisted which are three gestures/behaviors that are considered beautiful in Japan.
