'She turns herself into an object-and most particularly an object of vision: a sight' (Berger, 1972). This body of work explores the ideas of the heterosexual male gaze. In these photographs, the fruit appears sexualised and alluring. For centuries men have viewed women as erotic objects in high art and popular culture. The model contrasts this as she looks straight at the viewer, she is in control. The women appears confident in her sexuality whilst we objectify her. She recognises how she is observed as a vision. She steals back the control of the gaze.
