#dearcatcallers, It's not a compliment
Realising many people still don’t know how often and in whatever context catcalling happens, I started her project #dearcatcallers. I took pictures of each of my catcallers within the period of one month. By making the selfie, both the objectifier and the object are assembled in one composition. Myself, as the object, standing in front of the catcallers represents the reversed powerratio which is caused by this project
The collection was posted on instagram and went world wide viral. With a number of 350.000 followers and tens of millions of views, the projected is now running by itself through other people using the hashtag.
The project had various international exhibitions and is used in multiple teaching-programmes.
In multiple countries governments are now talking about how to treat streetharrasments more earnestly.
