Cass Bird

Cass Bird is a photographer whose work confronts gender roles in our mainstream world. The women in Cass Bird's pictures are pushing at the edges of their defined space: they are sexual, defiant, and open. Additionally, Cass bird has an easy eye for a moment, so her subjects live in unique and very real worlds-- sunlight angling in, dust, strange looks, complexities.
