About me
My name is Morena Manocchio and I am a creative perspectivist artist. This means my art is entirely subjective. I use photography to express myself and my ideas around the concept of what it means to be a woman in today's society. It also showcases the struggle of being a woman that does not fit the social standards of beauty. Having an academic background in Sociology and Criminology has equipped me with the essential and complex tool of critical thinking. And I apply these skills to be critical of social matters around body positivity, female empowerment and mental health awareness.

    BA(Hons) Criminology and SociologyUniversity of Westminster
    London, United Kingdom
    This course focuses on Immigration, crime, social injustice and youth unemployment. These are the key issues of our time. And it helps you understand how societal structures impact on people's everyday lives and interactions, or how criminal justice relates to social justice. Combined, these two disciplines develop your sociological and criminological imagination and answer questions about society and its various institutions.
