Conceptualizing Strength: Roller Derby

In Spring of 2017, I began photographing and interviewing skaters with the Texas Rollergirls (TXRG) Recreational League. Roller derby’s revitalization began in Austin in 2003, and has since spread internationally. My research revolved around skater names, which I assert enforce and construct ideas of individual and collective strength.

Thank you to TXRG and all the women pictured and interviewed for collaborating with me on this project.
