This week’s photo series is “CELEBRATE WOMEN” — directed by Nicole Chan, with support from other talented photographers. Women respond to the question “What empowers you?” in these raw, minimalist portraits.
“My dance shoes empower me because they support me when I dance, extending my strength and giving me the confidence to present myself before others. They also enable me to communicate with others in another way, expressing my emotions through dance movements. They encourage me to explore my potential, and give me power.”
