Curated by one of today’s most sought-after photographers, this collection of work by young female artists captures the voices and visions that are shaping a generation of women. 21-year-old Canadian photographer Petra Collins is leading the way in a contemporary girl power revolution that proves feminism and sexuality aren’t mutually exclusive. Babe includes work by Collins as well as over 30 artists who have been part of her online collective The Ardorous. Though their work is aesthetically varied, it all represents a current zeitgeist characterized by explorations of female identity, scrutinization of the role of the Internet and social media, and a penchant for pastel colors. The artists in the book, such as Arvida Bystrom, Sandy Kim, Harley Weir, Jeanette Hayes, and Kristie Muller, hail from a variety of places, including New York, London, Moscow, Stockholm, Los Angeles, Berlin, and Toronto. Together they reflect an all-accepting, affirming, distinctly female point of view that teens and young women everywhere can respond to. With a Foreword by Tavi Gevinson, writer, actress, fashion blogger, and creator of the online magazine Rookie, this is an inspiring collection for a new generation of creative, forward thinking women.

Review:

“In a world in which women are frequently shown how they should look―and look at themselves―Collins wants the images in Babe to change that dynamic by reflecting how young women see and present their own bodies.”

Slate



“[Collins’s] new book, Babe . . . represents an honest, transparent, and wholly confident femininity.”

Interview Magazine



“Babe depicts a whole range of femininities, from women laying in bed complete with period-stained sheets, sext messages on dated cell phones, dimly lit shots of nudity, hair, scars and all . . . it is thought provoking, and most importantly, familiar.”

The National Post



// SELECTED AS ONE OF THE 10 BEST PHOTO BOOKS OF 2015 //

"If the young artists in Petra Collins’ anthology are any indication, the future of photography is bright. More than 30 female photographers share the spotlight here, and though their works are stylistically diverse, they share a common mission: to take control of their own narratives, by representing themselves and their generation how they see it."

Slate.com



“Striking imagery as whimsical and free as Collins herself.”

Flare Magazine



“The collection is a thought-provoking and bold exploration of identity and sexuality that is all too rare to see . . . I flipped to the contributor section . . . and followed every artist on Instagram―I want to see more of their work, whatever form it takes in the future.”

Bitch Magazine



“The underlying ethos of Babe appears to be that idea that young women―pimples, periods, diets, insecurities and all―are worthy of love, from others, and from themselves . . . It raises [hope].”

Photo District News



“The sense of community between the women anthologized in Babe is apparent, and Petra makes it clear that her ability to achieve a level of artistic independence, devoid of patriarchal aesthetics, is thanks to the support she receives from fellow female artists.” —Huffington Post
