Unbound Echoes


Unbound Echoes confronts the pervasive issue of violence against women and the objectification of the female body in Dutch society. The project goes into the mistreatment of women, challenging the troubling normalcy of these behaviours despite the country's progressive reputation. By using glass plate analogue photography, traditionally seen as a masculine domain, the project strives to reclaim the narrative and empower women's voices. The women collectively represent solidarity in support of others who have endured similar day-to-day sexism or violence. This is contextualized in the latter part of the project with pictures of Dutch landscapes and statistical captions.


"One in twenty young people find rape of a female partner acceptable. One in five women has been physically abused by a partner or ex-partner. One in four women has experienced stalking at some point in their lives. One in three young women (18-29) has encountered cyber harassment." [1]

"The number of sexual assaults and rape has tripled from 2012 to 2020." [2]
