In an exclusive online showroom developed by All About Photo Reclaiming the Muse showcases two deploy-though provoking images challenging patriarchal narratives while shining a light on contemporary historic artwork and stories. The visionary photographers hope to reframe and retell stories that have reshaped our world for thousands of years. 

With a massive focus on female empowerment who have all too often been degraded to objects of beauty and scorned in traditional narratives leading to misconceptions about women’s role in society. This powerful series aims to breathe new life into the idea of the female muse. By bringing forth the issues that matter most when it comes to female representation including the idea of a woman as a stay-at-home mum, a cleaner, beauty-obsessed, or being the cause of their own sexual aggravations.
