Photographer: Winkler + Noah
Winkler+Noah are a couple of award winning photographers and artists based in Italy. For Winkler+Noah, photography was the most fitting point of arrival for an artistic itinerary that they began instinctively from childhood, exploring all the forms of expression that they encountered — painting, drawing and sculpture — amalgamating them and trying out blends between different media.
Recently, a group of archeologists in Israel found a mural representing Jesus as a woman, with a crown of flowers, pearls around her neck and red painted lips. It could be the not only symbolical confirmation, of God feminine nature, as in the past many heretics declared (among them Wilhelmina the Bohemian). The hypothesis is fascinating and, if true, would change immediately the bone structure of the contemporary society, frozen in a hard to kill paternalism. Our "femmes", not at all aiming to be divine, represent all sacrifices and suffering that women had to bear along history, and that allowed them to evolve into the so called “women century” - the nineteen hundreds -, and which we should never forget and always keep mind as far as conquests and emancipation.
