droplet - photobook by Sheryl Campbell
I work with current events involving problematic sexuality in New Zealand and make photographs that question gendered sexual norms.
droplet examines a case that came to light in February 2018 when several students, who were on internships at a top law firm, reported having been sexually assaulted by senior partners.
NZ’s boardrooms are top heavy with men in positions of authority. Although half of our law graduates are women, many leave the legal profession citing a culture of male entitlement and abuse of power. droplet re-imagines scenes and repercussions from this appalling event which NZ’s media sighted as our first official #MeToo moment.
