Men have been portraying women through the arts all through history, for generations and generations. They've always been portrayed as romantic creatures. Made to be sexualised, only to exist for men's pleasure and comfort.
Through this project I have portrayed women through a female gaze, in environments usually connected or similar to art made by men. With this work I am hoping to question the way women have been portrayed through history. I want my models to be seen as strong individuals that only exist for themselves.
