Bra Bra Bra — The visual art of Andrea Dankova

My body of work consists of surreal and Freudian interpretations of inner life and outward expressions of womanhood. According to Freud, the bra in our dreams signifies support, security, dignity and self-respect. Each photograph depicts different condition and emotional state inherent to femaleness –  from facing down gender stereotypes, limitations, fear and need of self-esteem to intimacy and self-love. I try to turn these experiences into playful and dreamy visuals with titles that should entertain or encourage females. The mission of my surreal photography with a conceptual feminist bent is to remind women artists and women in general of their worth and to simply empower them. ~Andrea Dankova
