The fetishisation of womens’ bodies and their regular reduction to breasts is something that New York artist Cindy Hinant is acutely aware of. Women is a collection of nine images, each depicting the torso of an artist, which were found online, and tinted into a shade of pink. Their breasts become the focal point, without any context given, thereby reflecting on how images of womens’ bodies are often presented without personal identity or information.
