Rosie Foster and the Power of the Female Gaze. — REFORM THE FUNK
Ewa Stryczek: I've has been following Rosie Foster’s photography account on Instagram for over a year now. When I saw that she was going to be visiting London to shoot new work, I knew I had to approach her to make a behind the scenes film. And guess what – she agreed! As Rosie shoots on a 35-mm camera, I decided to shoot on film, too, helping to capture the intimacy of the photoshoots. However, it’s not just Rosie’s photography that has fascinated me about her. Currently working as a Victim Support Worker for the South- West and being a mum, she’s staying honest about her struggles and the constant compromises she must face as a creative. I knew that simply capturing her working will not present the multi-faceted woman she is.

The Body on the Edge of Womanhood and Queerness – Unruly Bodies – Medium
This is the arc of loving yourself: not a lightning bolt or a movie romance, not swelling strings or bursting fireworks, but the incremental and incomplete progress of a melting glacier, shaping the land where it once lay. Over time, I have learned to accept love in small measures. I have learned to ask for better. Some days, I am able to see the wilds of my body as you saw them: worthy of loving exploration. You pulled me beyond the narrow imagination of so nice you found someone, the damning and faint praise of friends and family for the table scraps I was meant to savor.
