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 call for submission for the issue 7 is open!

Gender fluidity, flowing boundaries, a woman said to be too masculine, a man too feminine, neither a girl or a boy / La fluidité des genres comme la suite de ce questionnement sur la représentation du féminin. Aux frontières forcément floues, des femmes qui seraient trop masculines, des hommes trop féminins, ni fille, ni garçon.

Send 3 to 5 photos in low resolution in the core of the mail- the deadline is the 1st of november!
