The Unattended Mind and The Silent Soul is a story of transformation – the return of femininity to a more nuanced, organic understanding, free from preconception and stereotype. The binary relation between body and mind, between presence and thought, is tackled as an open concept, while an alternative mode of categorisation is being proposed.

Photographer Manuel Obadia-Wills and stylist Rumiko Koyama propose a visualisation of silence – the kind of silence that has defined the experience of being a woman for centuries; the intention is to question the silencing factors, as they might be embedded in visual cultures that traverse societies unchallenged.
