Artist Influences, Studio

Laura Mulvey

Mulvey founded the term and theory of the ‘male-gaze’ which is the way in which woman are depicted as objects of male pleasure in the visual arts and literature. In my work I want to explore the development and changes the male gaze has taken in art and photography since the renaissance; questioning whether our society has managed to overcome such male domination and sexism. Technology and social media will be a focal point for this investigation, in how it is being using in female favour.
