My take on The Female Gaze is based around the model/female subject, and her ever-shifting and very much reflective viewpoint. The origin of her gaze following the order of visual consumption , in some cases this is the status quo. In other instances it is a new emerging form of consumption. The work is made through the camera lens. I would like for the work to be considered dreamy and hyper-feminine. To me, The Female gaze is emotional and intimate. It seeks out empathy. It is technical yet under-developed. It is only now being given a chance to emerge. It needs time to refine itself. It is honest, and is feminine and unashamed.
