Unfinished series…will be about 24 images
These images are exploring the Western ideas of gender roles. I am playing off advertisement adds in magazines (over sexualized and demeaning use of women), which are perfect examples of what is excepted culturally. But I am switching the gender roles. I want to see how this change affects the viewer, and if they pick up on these underlying social issues. Our society is overloaded by images everyday, but there is a lack of gender equality in these images.
Both of these images were inspired by real adds. But that is a female posing in the boxers. With the other image I was inspired by an offence add where the female was on her knees and the male was standing. I simply switched this. And want to know how the viewer responds.
