"Women at sea - Breaking waves" is a photographic project with the aim of describing the life and work of female seafarers, in an attempt to challenge and change the stereotype of who a seafarer is."
How we appear in culture and what it tells us about us plays a role and also has the power to change the world. "Women at Sea" is a story about female seafarers who are out there, but who have not yet been presented to the public. Male sailors are surrounded by myths and excitement and are widely represented in visual art whilst female seafarers are rarely depicted. Through universal topics such as adventure, escape, longing, courage and strength, the seafarer’s story is carried into our consciousness and culture. This is not just a myth, they are both brave and strong - and this also applies to female seafarers. It's time to make their stories visible as they continue a tradition while breaking the norm.
