Dianas by Frieke Janssens

In her latest work Dianas, Frieke Janssens creates a photo series centered around single women and their literal hunt for mates. Inspired by the Diana, the Roman goddess of the hunt, moon, and childbirth, Janssens presents a modern, yet timeless, vision. Her Dianas are distinctly feminine yet rugged and mysterious - inaccessible as the goddess herself. These mythological figures have reversed the stereotypical idea of man as hunter and woman as prey - the men in the series have been captured and resigned to the inevitable. The images, atmospheric, detailed, and full of narrative, are typical of Janssens's work. Her painterly sensibility pairs well with her subject matter, imbuing the images with a sense of gravitas and sculptural feel befitting Diana.
