Prevalent within Heidi Lender's photography is the depiction of the female human form with the face obscured or cut out. These images articulate a message that speaks to the woman's implied domestic space and the possibilities she has towards determining what that entails. This series of photographs is called 'She Can Leap Tall Buildings,' a tribute to Heidi Lender's mother and the women that constantly toil to maintain a structured environment.
Within these photographs viewers are not privileged to the expression on the woman's face. All onlookers have to determine these sensations are the environment and objects that surround her. The photographs come with occupational titles such as 'The Photographer,' 'The Cook,' 'The Provider,' and so on. They demonstrate that a woman's work is never complete, even more so with a family to juggle.
With the term House Wife so often situated in a somewhat unflattering manner, She Can Leap Tall Buildings by Heidi Lender emphasizes that women are more than what they do.
