Looking at Kim Kardashian as the ‘nude selfie’ in comparison to traditional nude paintings, raises questions of ‘the gaze’ and where it is being focused.

In Kim’s selfie her gaze is held into the iPhone rather than to the audience, similarly to the traditional nudes where the gaze is never looking out towards us but instead looks down presenting themselves as a subject to gaze at.

Is the gaze of Kim’s in the phone or just the reflection of herself?
