Ashley Armitage – Free Swim

Have we already mentioned that we really love photos that look natural and like snap-shots? 21-year-old Seattle-based artist Ashley Armitage knows how to let a photo stay in your mind after viewing and how to give a picture an interesting touch.

“My photography is an exploration of what it means to represent femininity through a woman’s viewpoint and not through a man’s fantasy. In my work, I examine traditions and routines of girlhood that are often reduced to cliche or condemned as superficial, vain, petty, and catty. My work is an attempt to reclaim these activities in an all-accepting, body-positive way.”
