Photographer, Megan Winstone explores various representations of womanhood in her first solo exhibition
Megan Winstone’s Fenyw is a photographic series exploring various representations of womanhood.
Exhibiting at Arcade Cardiff, an artist-led gallery and project space in the Welsh capital, Winstone’s photographs reflect a current zeitgeist characterized by explorations of female identity, femininity, sexuality and really awkward teenage years. Speaking of the show, and women today, the photographer says: “this generation of women have grown up with the Internet; this has had a profound effect on our mental stability regarding body image and acceptance. Being a woman is shit sometimes; we are still facing sexist remarks, struggling for equal pay and menstruation is treated as a taboo. Other than that bollocks, I love being a woman!".

We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.
Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.
