This week Hamelys announced they would be ditching their separate floors for ‘girl’s toys’ and ‘boy’s toys’ labelled with pink and blue signs. A victory for political blogger Laura Nelson who blogs under the name “Delilah”. This sparked an interesting debate by Polly Curtis on the guardian website titled “Pink v Blue – are children born with gender preferences?”
This news makes my Pink Princesses project even more current and has encouraged me to try to complete the project so I can then think about publishing or exhibiting the final work.
I have around 25 final images and am aiming for 40 in total. I have photographed the majority of the work, and what’s left is to fill in the gaps and try to get the shots I haven’t been able to find so far, that would complete the story.
In particular I am looking for a pregnant woman, expecting a girl, that has or is about to decorate a pink nursery. Do get in touch if you know anyone who fits the bill. And watch this space..
