Fish Women / Poissardes

Fish are a symbol for deep feelings and unconscious longings but also for happiness and prosperity. The women in my pictures treat their fish differently. They almost choke on it, hold it tightly in theie hand or feel it floating ominously above them. But it's always about taking a stand, focusing on your own feelings and maintaining your freedom of choice.
Just like the fish women of the French Revolution, who took their fate in hand and marched to the king to enforce their demands.
