Curated by Petra Collins, one of today’s most sought-after photographers, Babe is a collection of work by 30 artists who have been part of her online collective The Ardorous. These artists are part of a new wave of young female artists whose work captures the voice of a contemporary feminist revolution that rejects the notion that empowerment and sexuality are mutually exclusive. Though their work is aesthetically varied, it all represents a current zeitgeist characterised by explorations of female identity, scrutinisation of the role of the Internet and social media, and a penchant for pastel colours.

The artists featured include Arvida Byström, Sandy Kim, Harley Weir, Dafy Hagai, Maisie Cousins, Jeanette Hayes, Kristie Muller and more. Together they reflect an all-accepting, affirming, distinctly female point of view that teens and young women everywhere can respond to. With a Foreword by Tavi Gevinson, writer, actress, fashion blogger, and creator of the online magazine Rookie, this is an inspiring collection for a new generation of creative, forward-thinking women.
