A Guide to Being a Jewish Woman Zine
A guide to being a Jewish woman, is a project exploring ideas of modesty and beauty within the orthodox Jewish community. The publication is also a visual representation of my experience being a Jewish woman, as well as other women's experiences. I wanted to show a surreal and almost humorous side to Judaism whilst including serious topics as well like anit-semitism. I conducted interviews from a variety of Jewish women to inform my statements of how to be a Jewish woman, and these interviews also informed some of the imagery I made. I was inspired to make this project because I never saw Jewish creatives being openly Jewish or making work about Judaism, and I wanted to change that.
