Photographer Makes a Bold Statement about Beauty and Grooming in ‘Lady Manes’ (NSFW)

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.

    A creative concept with appropriate poses. I would have liked to see some good 3D lighting effect.

    how is she challenging anything. she’s a skinny, clean-shaven white woman with a bunch of wigs covering her privates. she looks like she should be in an ad for american apparel.
