Millie Hardingham is a 21-year-old photographic and moving image artist born in London. She tackles the misrepresentation of women using analog processes, which allow her to focus on her subject without the interference of a digital screen. Feeling as though women in cinema were often represented as one dimensional and unrealistic, Hardingham decided to create following self portrait series. In Ana, she explores and challenges the dark side of Hollywood stereotypes, including the idea of the housewife. The images expose the hidden battles many women go through: isolation, fear, loneliness and dealing with trauma. These are experiences which Hollywood tends to brush over.
Nostalgia and sentimentality infiltrates all aspects of Hillsdon’s work as she employs a documentary style through the use of analogue photography.
