Abstract
All women are the children of Eve and the children of the earth. With the work of Eve’s

Prisoners, my aim was to create imagery about the transient stages of womankind and the

timeless relationship the feminine ideal has with nature. We are born innocent and able to see

the truth of things, but eventually we all imprison ourselves in our bodies, in language, and in our own nature. My pictures want to reconcile the innocence and the pain and to say that by accepting aging and death as part of life, we free ourselves from our own prisons.
