Marital Bonds – The Bride series
When women are together they talk about many things but eventually the conversation comes around to their relationships. They express their happiness and their disappointments and a lot of that daily conversation surrounds frustration. When women marry there are certain social, religious and cultural expectations put upon them. Most women understand this but through the daily giving to their family somehow they lose their own identity. They become somebody’s wife, somebody’s mother, somebody’s daughter in law. Their own needs are often on the back burner. Their desires chained by family and social restrictions. In order to break free of those relationships which prove to be unworkable, women are often faced with an unsurmountable list of questions and self-doubt. This personal project was inspired by several years of conversations with friends and a personal situation. If you are interested in purchasing a print please e mail me.
