98 Wounds Photo Series Part 3

15. Mystified Mystified are Jess, Alizon and Ben. I knew I was going to love Mystified before I even saw them- a remark from an amazed audience member who couldn’t believe that, “a woman can play such great riffs,” meant I was sold. (For both the riffs, and blowing this poor lads mind). Jess is…

A Tale of Round Rotis

Ever Since I was growing up I was told just how important it was to cook round rotis. Perfectly shaped soft, round rotis.   I hated them for their supposed ‘perfectness’, in a world full of people far from perfect who would judge a woman’s worth by her ability to make ’round rotis‘.   I…

98 Wounds Photo Series Part 2

08 Hero Fisher I first saw Hero Fisher and her band at ‘Camden Rocks’ in 2014. It was something of an accident as I had chosen to spend some time in Dingwalls because it had air-conditioning on a hot day. I was quite impressed, but in 2015 she did a series of stripped back gigs to support…

Pandora

And then she opened her mouth – small, faltering at first, then wider, surer, Names dropped like pebbles at her feet. Questions fell back between her teeth, Desire, Laughter, floated out, Conversation fluttered, darted. Wit came rolling from the back of her throat, Knowledge filled her cheeks – cool and fleshy like ripe melon, then…

Dear Nanny, on the Eve of Your Passing

When you haunt me, haunt me gently. Remember me, with perfect hindsight and paranormal clarity. I’ll do my best to do the same for you when we see each other in the mirror every morning. That’s a promise I’ll keep, unlike thank you notes, Christmas cards, and calls on your birthdays. I want to say…

The Shared Vagina Experience

The article assures me that the obstetrician mentioned is the same one that “helped GP with her pregnancies” — GP in this case Gwyneth Paltrow, she who curates a world of untouchable wealth photographed with such clean and satisfying lines that one could be forgiven for the fleeting thought that $1,200 is a fair price…

Kissimmee

‘Do you know I’ve never jumped into a pool voluntarily?’ says the girlfriend. ‘I’ve always been pushed.’ The girlfriend is lying with her feet in her boyfriends lap. Outside, it is the middle of winter; snow slaps the window. Inside, the room is sticky with false heat. The girlfriend’s legs are long. She is sitting…

ACROSS GENERATIONS

These are a few of my favourite shots of some of the ladies in my family. To me, these images epitomise feminism in its most simple form, stripped of the cultural and political, a simple celebration of beauty, freedom, passion, strength and femininity in whatever form it takes. By Tegan Faber Former journalistic dabbler, current…

THE MORNING AFTER

Washing and roaring and thrashing, pushing in and dragging out, scores the room. Laura lies in half consciousness, letting it wash over her, as the image of her Aunt Gwyn miming at her to brush the back of her teeth fades and warps, leaving just the feeling of furred teeth and a heavy, warm cocoon…
