Born a woman, this performance with burlap is a journey which (if not physically) represents all women in the presence for opportunity. The opportunities to make choices, when others cannot, for the betterment of their societies. This may seem as a gift or a blessing for outstanding performances by women, but only a woman knows that the difficult paths paved for her require the instillment of hope.
Many women of culture have narrated dialects of challenging situations, which are now used to further implement education and empower young girls to grow strong and confident. In these photographs, beautiful Danika gives Haroon Ahmad, photographer of Elevated Moments are direct glare. The glare in PHOTOGRAPH A provides a stronger, sensual dialogue between the subject and the viewer than PHOTOGRAPH B provides. Even though the model is half nude in PHOTOGRAPH B, her look is softer as her turban redefines her sensuality to a cultural norm.
In both photographs, the woman is placed in both gender specific roles. In fashion today, we see that simplicity has broken down the barrier between what is feminine and what defines masculinity. The same material, burlap is used to wash away the dos of each gender role and provide the NEW ERA movement for women internationally. Working women to the women at home. The woman in her social life to the woman on her casual 9-5. Styled by Sarah Hussain, Owner of Breath of Henna - Sarah has created two traditional, tribal looks for a modern, lifestyle photography shoot.
Having these, fairly evident images portrayed by beautiful Danika, the burlap gives aid to those roots of strong-willed women of the past civilizations. A creative collaborative between new age Artists where cultural heritage implements morales for motivated youth.
