Jessica Yatrofsky ImageMFA Photography Alumna Jessica Yatrofsky will be releasing her second book I Heart Girls this August 2015. Congrats Jessica!

About the book: The subjects of I Heart Girl do not exhibit the expected stereotypes of women in mass media today. Instead, each face and each body is presented by Jessica Yatrofsky through study and repetition, examining femininity with irreverence and countering the widely accepted female image of past generations.

Ordinary and exotic are the extremes, and Yatrofsky allows them all to exist within the confines of her photographs. Collectively, the narrative is an invitation to re-examine what we know of femininity. I Heart Girl embraces the complexity of gender identification and it’s latest collective shifts. The subjects are both venerable and powerful, a candid yet tender reminder that femininity is not singular.
