I read this amazing article in NY Times today on artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh’s street art project addressing gender-based street harassment. This is something I deal with on a daily basis living in New York - and I’m positive it applies to every woman living or working in the city. There’s not a day that goes by without some guy giving me a tiny “compliment” or saying something creepy to me on my way to work or on my way home. Maybe many women become numb to comments like these and start to ignore them. Maybe it doesn’t bother everyone, or we just learn to deal with it. 

Tatyana’s art and the thought behind the project really spoke to me.

Here is a bit from the article and more information on her work below:

"Ms. Fazlalizadeh and her helpers brushed on two dozen more posters she had created. Images of young faces stared back with wary, defiant and no-nonsense gazes above statements such as “My Outfit Is Not an Invitation,” or “Women Do Not Owe You Their Time or Conversation.”

The words came from Ms. Fazlalizadeh’s interviews with women about “catcalling,” a form of public harassment by men who feel free to comment on their bodies and demeanor. Women around the country have begun to speak out publicly, in blogs,public writing projects and on the websites of anti-harassment groups like Stop Street Harassment and Holla Back, which document and research the problem. Many women have said they feel objectified and demoralized by sexual comments made on the street, and Ms. Fazlalizadeh has transformed their feelings and images — she photographs the women and then creates pencil drawings — into a major public art project.

“This is all about how women’s bodies are consumed and are considered public property for display, comment and consumption,” said Ms. Fazlalizadeh, a soft-spoken, direct and contained 28-year-old from Oklahoma. “Women need to start talking about their daily moments because it’s the smaller stuff that affects the larger things, like rape, domestic violence, harassment in the workplace.”

"There is a wall in my neighborhood I pass often that’s always covered in graffiti. One time I walked by there was a random pizza tag in the middle of the wall. I thought it was so funny—just a random pepperoni pizza there in the middle of the wall,” says Los Angeles photographer Jonpaul Douglass, creator of the #pizzainthewild hashtag. “I thought it would be humorous to do a photo series of real pizzas on random things, but I didn’t start doing the #pizzainthewild series until months after when I had a bit of free time.”
The series had humble beginnings. “For my first test shot, I just had a pepperoni pizza delivered and went around my neighborhood putting it on stuff,” explains Jonpaul. “I quickly realized that having the pizza sliced wasn’t the way to go. I wanted a pizza that looked more graphical with a nice separation between the cheese and pepperoni. Basically what I wanted was what I call ‘Ninja Turtle pizza,’ because the look of the pizza in those cartoons was perfect.”
After some trial and error, Jonpaul decided on Little Caesars (@littlecaesars) pizza. “The price is as beautiful as the pizza. Five dollars for a large pizza that much of time I reuse… It’s a steal!”
Jonpaul’s series has sparked the interest of pizza lovers on Instagram. “What I have noticed is that lots of people feel very passionate about pizza. So much so that I feel like it warrants a scientific study!” he says. “I’ve been contacted by many pizza fans over the past few months. One guy calls me his ‘honorary pizza brother’ which I get a real kick out of.”


THIS… this is incredible!
