While I’ve been busy getting ready for the last two exhibits I took a little time to process a couple of black and white negatives in the scanner and photoshop. The first is an example of work I did a long time ago based on our conceptions of masculinity and femininity. The second an old negative that was never printed because it didn’t fit into any projects I was working on.
The first was taken with a wide angle lens to purposely distort the hands and hips in the image and challenge our concepts of beauty. The hand looks very masculine while the pose is very feminine.
The second is a classic pose used by many fashion and portrait photographers for editorial type images. I hope you enjoy them and take a little look into some things I did in the past.
