I started hosting people regularly at a single room in my place by using different online accommodation options. Once visitors started popping by, I decided to photograph women travelers, as quite more often than men, women who travel alone are exposed to bullying, abuse, fear, harassment or violence. This situation does not change when they travel, even in many of the XXI st century "modern and developed societies". By sharing these photos, I hope other women can be empowered, uplifted, and encouraged in pursuing their own travels freely.
