Projects

The Curse

The Curse is a series that takes a look at the women's body

Objects of Desire

Objects of Desire spawned from an earlier series entitled Dressed in Sin, based on female nudity. Objects of Desire focuses on the multiple facets throughout art history: the male gaze, subjectification of women, and the typical photographer to model relationship; and reversing these roles. The male nude series depicts male models in positions that women have been found in from historic artworks to modern and contemporary commercial, and noncommercial, photographic works. My male models are far from the stereotypical “ideal" man in most cases, for it is less about how their body looks physically, but more about the position and the connotation of the position they are in, and the vulnerability those positions create. Not only has the gender of the model been greatly changed from what society normally sees as their subject matter, but so has the gender of the photographer: going from the classical male photographer photographing a female model to a female photographer photographing a male model, further causing tension and unease with the poses the male models are placed in. By mounting on 24” X 24” metal, I have replaced the standard gallery white mat to serves the function of matting, and a visual element to entice the viewers, as well as the juxtaposition between the harshness of the male body and the soft focus, and feminine pose in which the model is in.
