A poetic photographic journey, the story of a fascinating metamorphosis told in images with original verses by a poetess.
Femina Fera is much more than a collection of artistic nudes in black & white. It is a study of the animalesque, a kind of photo safari on the trail of a woman who is both spirit and animal; it is the story of a female who metamorphosizes into a feral beast. The nude, wild woman in the first photos does not display pride but fear. The forest is cold and dark, the river threatening, and danger lurks in every shadow. But gradually she transforms. She learns from the beasts. Her metamorphosis begins ¿ she starts to move like an animal, to hunt like an animal, she conquers her fear, she is no longer confined by her own limits and rises up as a powerful queen of the jungle. There’s no cruelty in a wild animal, only pride, beauty, and the ability to survive in a natural habitat that is magnificent yet hostile, in a harsh, savage world that has not yet been dominated by man. Now the slender, refined woman roars like a lion on a high rock.
