Pink and Plastic
Photo taken by Aisha.
Aisha just turned ten years old, and is the youngest of the girls, but that doesn’t stop her from bossing them around. She is the younger sister of Rifa, and they both make and sell jewelry and provide the main income for the family. She loves wearing dresses, and is the best skater of the girls.
Programme : Bangladesh surf girls
At Lensational we believe that photography is an enabler of agency. We want to move beyond the monolithic image of victimhood of women because they not only have overlapping identities — mothers, daughters, friends —, but are also individuals with dreams and aspirations.
Each photo is a snapshot of their journey of empowerment through photography.
