A Woman's Realm
A Woman’s Realm’ is a series of the nude which pursues an alternative representation of the female body by attempting to strip away the gaze of the male.
The accumulation of images of the female form from a man’s viewpoint has left women with a sparse visual language of how to represent it from their own perspective.
The primary motivation was to understand and accept my own body outside of a gaze which often lingers in the subconscious. I wanted to explore how other women inhabited their bodies, how they would choose to present themselves, to be with their bodies as their own and not primarily as an object of desire.
