6 Photographers On What Their Period Means To Them

For this Rag Week special of the R29 Photo Album, we commissioned six female photographers to create a new image about what menstruation means to them.
From the crimson waves of emotion, to the relationship with our body and its function, to femininity, self-care and sexuality, the results paint a moving picture of how women see and feel about their periods.
