Glass Ceiling

I was introduced to these photographs by Marie Claire SA's picture editor, Jo Youens. I really find the colours and the concept very interesting. It is called 'glass ceiling', which for me, being a scholar of sociology, means of course that it is gender related. The glass ceiling refers to the workplace and a woman's difficulty of being promoted or achieving the same success within the workplace than a man. 

I love the way this concept is resonated here: women floating freely in water where they are completely free and independent, which is the potential of women. Then you have the 'glass ceiling' being the water, which often constricts their incredible potential.
