Throughout history women has been objectified and mistreated. In the last century things started to change rapidly for the better. This image of being a woman became ever more complex if possible. The focus I’ve had in this project was the female role in the 21st century, my personal dilemma and the consequences in the modern era.

When I think about women, I think about myself and all those emotions around it. Needs, desires, goals, confusion, fear, mistakes and insecurity. Just lately, as I’m getting older having thoughts about being a mother. The older I’m getting the stronger the instinct becomes. I could never image this happen. I know the way I approach this project is quite personal but I intended to paint a picture of a modern women in general with these feelings I’m going through. 

These complexities change the image of the woman we all knew. We’re taking responsibility of our own life, choosing a profession and becoming equal. On the other hand we are still the nurturer. This duality shows on my images. The difficulties we are facing now are new and different. Many of us are taking hormonal pills to prevent unwanted surprises or to help hormonal imbalances. We try to take control over our life but our body is clearly confused. The longer we wait, the bigger the risks. Still we tend to be selfish and repeat the same things, that ‘It’s not the right time now’. So we keep on going. This is what my portrait represents, all those layers behind the female’s mind. All those emotions, roles, expectations and ideas.

Exploring the boundaries of gender and gendered expression, these photographs draw on the art of drag and female illusion, combining or conflating them with more traditionally masculine styles. The photographs also allude to queer culture and counterculture, as viewed through a mostly camp...

I am a self-portrait photographer, who specializes in conceptual art. Although greatly influenced by historical drama, my work is deeply personal and symbolic in nature. I suffer from a hyper-sensitive skin condition. As a teenager, I would often attempt to cover it up; I resented being asked if I h...

“The feminine nature is the protagonist of Cristina Cabrita's canvases, precisely because the woman has that particular sensitivity that can guide her and lead her to observe reality through the softness of the nuances, and it is perhaps by virtue of that same sensitivity that she bends to find the...
