I’m presenting these portraits as a statement to challenge conscious and unconscious bias.

Participants in the series include Cindy Gallop, founder of If We Ran The World and Make Love Not Porn, Lori Senecal, Global CEO for CP+B and Nilofer Merchant, Fellow at The Martin Prosperity Institute on “New Power.” The dramatic portraits are set next to statements describing how these subjects will create change for females in advertising.
Women control 73% of consumer purchasing and $20 trillion of the world’s annual consumer spending. Until The 3% Conference came along in 2012, only 3% of creative directors were women. Today the number has grown to 11%.
Ms. Nialla utilizes the portrait series as a call for gender-balanced leadership with women’s and men’s contributions valued equally. The series emphasizes the subject’s strength and beauty with the use of dramatic lighting and a clean background. With this technique, Ms. Nialla forces the viewer to see the subject’s femininity and power without distractions.
