EXCLUSIVE EDITION OF 15
Artists Lois Cohen & Indiana Roma Voss
Amsterdam, Netherlands I 2018
“Pink Ranger” is part of “Metamorphosis”, a project in which visual artists Lois Cohen and Indiana Roma Voss attempt to redefine female icons and figures throughout history that have influenced to- day’s image culture -from religion to pop culture, from art history to cartoons. Essentially by recasting the women embodying these rollmodels and reconstructing certain elements within the classic imagery, the meaning of the image itself changes. Breaking free from the somewhat stereotypical and onedimensional portrayals, the series seeks to create new archetypes of strong women in a photography that aims to be as inclusive as possible.
It’s hard to find positive portrayals of Muslim women in western media and popular culture, or any empowering representation at all for that matter. Why not reimagine Pink Ranger, a female character from the Power Rangers -the holy grail of cool for kids that grew up in the 90s- as a Muslim woman, fighting against oppresive stereotypes while embracing her roots.
