We already know that patriarchy was more dominant than ever in the past. That didn't mean there were no feminists, though. In 1902, artist Albert Bergeret designed a set of French trading cards that showed imagined portraits of "women of the future". The cards showcased women stepping into roles that were dominated by men -- doctor, lawyer, politician firefighter, members of the military, etc. To women of the early 20th century and before, this was all but a pipe dream.
Although the style of the cards is akin to pin-ups, this retro-futuristic set was hopeful for women. There's no mocking or hyper-sexuality done, just a depiction of what was once a futuristic idea.
Self-portraiture is synonymous to experimenting and getting to know one's self, it's a classic tradition of art history, but it never fails to be beautiful. And such is Rimel Neffati, who finds amusement within herself, through photography, red lipstick, masks, crowns, and flowers.
