Being a teen in the 2020s is being at the crossroad of fundamental changes on top of jumping into adulthood.

Fab Rideti captures that tension in a series of portraits of future women of influence. They are 13 to 16, yet they could command an army, or negotiate their way into any negotiation.

 

Speaking to the child in them, Fab Rideti dresses them in costumes she makes up with second-hand clothes and recycled materials. With her sense of craftsmanship and ability to capture one's true nature, she brings them into the institutional atmosphere of Dutch paintings.

 

Fab Rideti creates a gallery of XXIst century portraits of leading women in their infancy. She invites them to find their inner voice and transform the world as they wish, setting an example for other young women to follow.
