As You Were
Within my project, “As You Were”, I explore emerging gender identities, and how they relate to the camera and art history itself. In recent history, the concept of gender has become more fluid and dynamic as time goes on, with people being able to freely change which gender they identify as, or even to not identify with a gender at all. With art history typically being dominated by male and female stereotypes, a new relationship between the camera is formed when gender doesn’t come into play. Collaborating with two of my friends, who both identify as non-binary, we explore this contemporary relationship with the camera, and how my friends explore this gender identity within themselves too.
