About this work
adjective: clandestine: kept secret or done secretively, especially because illicit.
The thoughts that get pushed into darkness.
Clandestine is an ongoing series, this work investigates some of the often-unacknowledged struggles facing young women today.
Conflicting images of what role women are meant to play in our society creates a constant struggle for many to keep up appearances, and their masks become so engrained that they start to take over. Mental health and emotions are trivialized and downplayed in a society that is too busy to recognize or react to the challenges facing so many.
