Consumed by images of the women who graced the stages of the Miss Exotic World pageant, the artist located some of the most renowned performers whose ages ranged from the 50s to the 70s. She then visited the women’s homes, chatted with them, and took their portraits as they donned their favorite outfits.    The beautifully diverse group of women is celebrated here for their style, courage, and wit.

  Barbie’s place in adolescence and constructed femininity has baffled psychologists and feminist alike: on one hand, she’s a patient confidante onto which girls might project their hopes and aspirations. But she also espouses limited and damaging views on female roles, bodies, and sexuality. She sends conflicting messages, passively listening to you for hours while remaining inhumanly cold.
