Kate Sweeney is a self-taught photographer from Columbus, Ohio whose work has been featured in Dazed, Refinery29, The Huffington Post, Glamour Magazine, and Teen Vogue. She aims to make work that challenges ideas of femininity with a proud honesty that is simultaneously defiant and inviting by utilizing the human form, color, and our connection to nature.
I hope to make work that challenges the norms of femininity and what it means to be a woman. I believe we need to be liberated from a hyper-sexualized portrayal of women in mainstream media. My goal is to help desexualize the female form and empower others to celebrate their own beauty and strength.
Kate’s piece “Kelsey with her daughter, Harley.” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15. See more of her work at http://katesweeneyphotography.com.
