Women have always been at the heart of communities and it’s women who have their fingers on the pulse of daily life. Women do 70-80% of all agriculture & food production in the world. Women are responsible for well over half the world's cash income and now play a central role as compassionate power brokers and decision makers. We should be continually reminded that ‘girl power’ is older than mere 21st century pop culture. Relying on their hospitality and organisational savvy has frequently meant the difference between success and failure on many of my travels and photographic projects. This exhibition is a celebration of womanhood and marks 30 years of travelling to remote, rural and ethnic communities.
