My Gaze is surrounding the idea of the female gaze and how my models view themselves, versus how other women view them. The full body portrait represents how other women view them, whereas the close-up shots focus in on how my models view themselves. The aim of this project is to break the stigma of how women are viewed within the media and society, as well as normalising characteristics and aspects of the human body. I, as a female photographer believe that this is a really important topic to discuss within society, and especially within the artistic industry in which many women are judged upon their appearance, creating this project is a small step towards breaking societies standards of women.
