Fortes Mulheres


Inspired by the feminine strength, André François portrayed, for two years, women who walked journeys full of challenges, love and strength. The photographer crossed the country with just one question: what is overcoming for you?

The answers resulted in the photographic documentary and the documentary video Fortes Mulheres, in which the characters tell their own stories and show why they are inspirations for their communities, families, country and themselves.

The work addresses issues such as teenage pregnancy, family relationships, domestic and gender violence and coping with diseases such as cancer.
