We're thrilled to have our project Photography For Girls, in collaboration with Kelly Merchant Photography featured in the Fall 2016 campaign for FACE Stockholm.
"This Fall, we had the opportunity to work with a really special photographer, working on a really special project. Kelly Merchant, (along with Akira Ohiso and Ellie Ohiso) is the driving force behind Photography For Girls. A movement that consists of photographing women on their terms with realistic representation, portraying them in a light where they are comfortable in their own skin. Ruby, this Fall’s model, is a part of this campaign. The 16-year old artist believes and supports the message Photography for Girls is trying to get across. Photography for Girls confronts feminine stereotypes, something we at FACE Stockholm can fully get behind!"

In 2015, Ohiso collaborated with photographer Kelly Merchant on the Photography For Girls project. The project features photos and interviews with women of all ages. The uniqueness of this project is that the women featured had a say in how they were represented in the photos. This weekend, four of Kelly Merchant's photos along with accompanying interviews by Akira Ohiso will be on exhibition at the Wired Gallery as part of a group show. The exhibition runs May 21 thru July 3. Opening reception is May 21 from 5-7pm.
