The Fanciful, Monstrous Feminine: one of the greatest feminist art series, ever

This incredible series of photographs features “morbid depictions of common beauty rituals” of women. Created by artist Jessica Ledwich, each photo is just as bizarre as the next, showing just what women have gone through in their beauty practices that are quite “monstrous”. Ledwich says her project explores the fact that throughout “history, the bodies of women have been represented as a threatening form of sexuality”.
