Photographer, Kamisalak captures women’s ‘real, raw and emotional beauty’ in a portrait series of ‘violent expression and extreme sexuality’

Words by Kamisalak

Fēmĭna is aware of who she is and what she represents.
Her skin is real, raw and scratched.
Her lips, dirty and worn out.
Her attitude, rude and rough, and her love, a pure struggle.
She is stable.
She is dark, and she has a quiet confidence that screams loud.
She loves and hates herself when she is vulnerable.
She is not afraid of being extreme or rad.
She is a savage, and she doesn't rely on anyone else.
She comes out of the world like a Nymph.
Her sexuality is sacred and her maternity is inviolable.
Her way of living is unapologetic.
Therefore she has never been a compromise but a contradiction.
She is the one who thinks up the storm and dreams up the mess.

As a publisher and Community Interest Company, TRIP is dedicated to showcasing unconventional stories that may otherwise be overlooked. 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.

As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
