Art from Brent Leideritz

In today's highly visual society, one has to ask, what exactly makes for a real woman? Photographer Brent Leideritz and makeup artist Mishka (as well as guest MUAs) asked this exact question in the exhibition, Real Women earlier this year. With the help of advertising and mass media influenced thought, more often than not women are judged and categorised by society's perception of beauty, fashion sensibility, sexuality and sexual preference, career success, maturity, self worth and past stereotyped expectations. In this exhibition I present these varied and debatable aspects for you to reflect on. Real women presented as unreal women. What makes a real woman? What should we all believe?
