For this series, Liana guides both models and street casted women to find strength in their vulnerability. Liana is inspired by iconic traditional Goddesses of different cultures and time periods as well as the stories of her modern subjects. The series is a conversation between tradition and modernity, the past and present Goddess within each woman.
