Photos of women in control of their bodies

Whether it's squeezing up on a bus while a manspreader takes up three seats next to you or the online vitriol thrown at women who speak out on social platforms, we’re constantly being reminded that the idea of simply existing comfortably is a luxury not allowed to many women and nonbinary people. However, one photographer with a track record for discarding societal notions of what marginalised people should or should not be is Ashley Armitage.
