Shattered’ is a transnational, multidisciplinary research photography project. This is a new project that started two months ago and comprises of photography, sound and text. It documents the life and career aspirations of women who have been affected by our patriarchal world in a number of different ways. There is a photo of each woman holding a mirror. This displays themselves in reality and reflects what are they looking at outside the frame. This visual metaphor shows what is being left out of their lives but remains in their psyches. For Hatice and Derin (pictured) this is the schools they were not allowed to finish full time education.
