“Ask Her How She’s Doing is a photographic series shot over the summer of 2015, in which artist Katherine Simóne Reynolds asked and listened to Black women (some friends, some strangers) in St. Louis neighborhoods while proposing the question “How are you actually doing today.” An attempt to dismantle the myth of the Black superwoman — a strong, impassive figure who, by myriad social forces, is denied the ability to define her own narrative — these documented encounters create a space for the expression of vulnerability and culturally stigmatized emotional states, such as depression”- Eileen G’Selle for Hyperallergic article
