SEE IT FROM HER +
'Photography helps people to see' Berenice Abbott
See It From Her + (SIFH+) is a project that supports women and those who feel oppressed because of their gender identity, to have a voice and be heard through photography and image.
SIFH+ is exclusively run by, and supports all women (trans, intersex and cis) non-binary, agender and gender variant people.
SIFH+ runs group photography projects, 1-1 mentoring and exhibitions offering a creative platform for individuals to tell their own stories, share their experiences and express themselves in an accessible and different way. SIFH+ also hosts events, conducts research and facilitates discussion around gender discrimination, sexism and representation.
Our main goal is for women and agenger, gender variant and non-binary people to be able to represent themselves and be in control of their own identity.
We want to see a better representation of women, non-binary, agender and gender variant people in positions of power and their views and ideas understood as important.
We want to smash stereotypes around gender identity and challenge sexism in all its forms.
We want to see women and oppressed genders to be able to speak openly about issues that affect them without being attacked.
We want women to stop being objectified, sexualised and abused.
We want non-binary, agender and gender variant people to not be filed into binary genders and for their identity to be understood and taken seriously
We want those who are trans to feel safe to live in the gender that they are and not be discriminated and abused because of their appearance
We want women, non-binary, agender and gender variant people to be visible.
Through creating safe, supportive, inclusive and compassionate spaces and using photography as tool for self-expression, the same media that often misrepresents oppressed genders, SIFH+ aims to empower women, non-binary, agender and gender variant people to speak out about their experiences and feel able to share their stories – taking back ownership of their identity.
