Over the past 45 years Linda Wolf has lived and traveled world-wide as a photographer. Since 2006, she's focused particularly on women with the song, Full Woman, by Rachel Bagby, inspiring her. Her work celebrates the inherent dignity of all women—inclusive of culture, race, color, shape, size, age, religious affiliation, spiritual belief, sexual orientation, abilities, and life experience. Her images celebrate the strengths that make each woman a full woman—to be valued and respected simply as women: resilience, heart, wisdom, intelligence, compassion, experience, intuition, beauty, love. Mostly contemporary, the images were taken in China, Thailand, India, Mexico, Guatemala, the USA, Canada, Europe, Africa, Iran, and Israel/Palestine. I am a Full Woman is decided to the girls and women of the world, to remind ourselves that we are enough. And to boys and men, may we all get beyond the Gender Boxes and step into our wholeness, in this awesome time of dire beauty.
