War & Peace (Frigid Air)

War & Peace (Frigid Air)

The War & Peace series highlights the difference between the perception of the intelligence and ability of women in the early 1940s (when the US government sought to recruit them in the war effort) and the postwar years (when women were expected to return to domestic duties).  


Inspired by photos of women working on bombers, Frigid Air juxtaposes the temperature in which these bombers flew with the temperature of the kitchens to which these women were encouraged to return once the war ended.
