Advanced Photography (Art 180) student seeks 2 female models in Fall 2018
Contact Romina Frohar: rominafoorouhari1374@berkeley.edu
The project is about the intersectionality of religion (Islam) and gender. Some images require nudity, because the project is about the female body and its portrayal and transformation through faith. I will be posting the images online, so I want the students to feel comfortable and approach the concept with an open mind. Photo shoots on weekends in an indoor building.  In exchange, I can do free headshots for the students.
