Cat Call Portraits

30 Oct

Cat Call Portraits

Photographer Hannah Price has undertaken a project to reclaim some of the power structure by approaching and photographing men that shout at her in Philadelphia. As she describes it,

This project is a work in progress documenting a part of my life as an African-Mexican-American, transitioning from suburban Colorado to consistently being harassed on the streets of Philadelphia. These images are a response to my subjects looking at me, and myself as an artist looking back.

It’s a proactive approach to ridiculous conditions that women around the world have to deal with daily. And “cat calls” are often the best case scenario.

Discovery’s Final Launch

Note: The new In Focus gallery on The Atlantic looks a lot like The Big Picture from Boston.com, and for good reason. In January the creator of The Big Picture, Alan Taylor,  left The Boston Globe for The Atlantic.
