In the March-April, 2017 issue of Creative Image magazine, we explore the intricacies of not just the act of photographing female but, the photographs that portray women in vivid lights. It pans over ideas and expressions of femininity, of effeminacy, of identities and roles held on to by women in the contemporary world. This issue revolves around the subject of age and sexuality through personal storytelling approaches by photographers from different cultures. This issue brings forth the visual poetry of Inge Morath, which she made out of people and their places over half a century.
