The Head On Photo Festival 2012 saw the birth of the See Jane Run collective: four female photographers committed to an ongoing dialogue about the visual representation of women and

girls in the media and in art. The Janes took to the walls of Depot II Gallery with beautiful and confronting imagery, inviting an open conversation on the feminine ideal, body image and gender expectations.

This year The Janes are extending the conversation to examine the transitional markers of womanhood, the shifting boundaries that define what it means to be seen as a sexual being. The

pressure to perform and conform, and to be that which the world loves, is immense. The Year 6 girl, who is thrust into a dress without consultation; the girl-child growing into a woman and suddenly becoming burdened by the gaze of others and the deeply conflicting rules around womanhood; the body-obsessed; the fight to come to terms with ageing and the fight against femininity as weakness.

The overarching reality is that there are few visible positive female role models.
Where do our girls and women turn in their struggle?
What do women look like to them?See More Janes in 2013 – the collective has grown!
Depot II, Danks St is the stage again and the passion for change as strong as ever.
The Janes are back!
Be bold.
Be heard.
Be seen.
