SHEGAZES





SHEGAZES is a paradigmatic shift toward the portrayal of women in art and in photography.

 

Women’s bodies have been used to a maximum extent for voyeuristic male sexual pleasure. Through cinema and literature we grew up offered images of naked, sexualized women, displayed for, and created by, the male gaze. Most of us (men and women) have internalized these images as normal and common and we unconsciously reproduce them through our art. If we want to change the perception of women, we need to change their representation in literature, art, media, and fashion. We need to destroy the images that we consumed growing up, we need to unlearn what we think is a good and appealing picture.
SHEGAZES wants to gather everyone to create new images of women and establish new rules. It can be playfull, surreal, insolent, dreamy, bold, anything but a naked women on a kitchen counter!

 

The theme for the third issue is Witches, Woman & Nature. Submission deadline is the 15th of january.
