John Berger: Ways of Seeing

Parts of Ways of Seeing that I have taken interest in is the historical objectification of women by men and the way the portrayal of a women’s body in art (painting and photographs) has changed over time from the Renaissance onwards.

In my work I have attempted to created a physical metaphor of Berger’s thoughts that Men look at women, while women watch themselves being looked at. I have done this by placing the mirror in front of the image of the nude-selfie.
