Daytona Beach photographer Rhiannon Schneiderman defies gender norms involving grooming and beauty in her self-portrait series Lady Manes. Partially inspired by the concept of a man’s facial hair serving as a declaration of his masculinity, Schneiderman challenges with a tongue-in-cheek reverse, posing proudly with various stylized “manes.” Simultaneously promoting body positivity while poking fun at the establishment, Schneiderman¬†encourages women to take pride and be empowered by every part of who they are.
