• What are they active muzhlanki San Francisco?
Photo project "Muzhlanki" dedicated to women who feel confident in their own skin - namely, in the masculine image. They wear short hair, and looking at them, at times, difficult to understand who is in front of you - a girl or a guy. But they are proud of their choice.
When the photographer Meg Allen started taking pictures of her friends lesbians in San Francisco last year, she had no idea that this project will become so personal for her. Allen describes himself as "masculine" girl - she was such a life. "At times, I tried to be feminine, but it has always seemed wrong to me."
Her photo project called "Muzhlanki" reveals man's nature and beauty in a series of portraits of women. Allen inspired books Jill Posener "Just a Girl", but wanted to raise the image of feminine masculinity to a new level. "I lived in San Francisco, and at that time it was the city of masculine women ... but to prove it was only this book and only a handful others like them." If you feel that this is unfair, Meg Allen decided to create their own projects devoted to masculine women.
Meg Allen describes the project "Muzhlanka" as follows: "It is a tribute to those who are not afraid of life beyond the binary system; those who during the day can change the pronouns "he" and "she". "
"who are ashamed at heart and who look with suspicion at airports."
"Those who want their children to call them by name, because they do not fit into any" mom "or" dad "."
"It is a tribute to women, husbands, lesbians and bucham that continue to thrive in our time."
Allen grew up in San Francisco, but it was truly amazed to see "so many people", or similar to it.
"They were like men, but behaved proudly and boldly."
"It's hard when people are staring at you."
"They are angry because they can not understand - are you a boy or a girl. Why is it so important? "
"Especially when we are pregnant - this is the first that ask a woman."
"As if it affects our attitude to this man."
