As part of our Women of Influence issue in September, Lifestyle collaborated with ArtServe—the award-winning arts incubator based in Fort Lauderdale—on a pictorial feature inspired by the creative laboratory’s recent photography exhibition, “Superficial Impressions.” The images chosen by Lifestyle, taken by female photographers/artists spotlighted in the exhibit, speak to the web of feelings, fears, joys, and challenges experienced by women of all ages and backgrounds. In the online version of the story, Lifestyle presents additional images (connected to the exhibition series) by the featured photographers.
Fernanda do Valle
Fernanda’s photography re?ects every part of her, even the parts of which she is not fully aware. She found a way to voice her thoughts, combining her photography and writing skills. Her personal experiences and pain have taught her that the best cure is to communicate mostly with like-minded people. This connection keeps her motivated. Through her art, she calls attention to diversity in di?erent shapes, ages, and ethnicities.
