Photographic Series, Glamour Gun 

2002 - 2003





A series of photographic works exploring female identity and the fashion magazine.

“ ... the manufacturedness, the signifying process must be repressed so that the image seems a spontaneous and credible... Both word and image must address in this field for it offers fictive fields for fantasy located in credible spaces, likely scenarios, and fantastic possibilities. It addresses the demand for the legible and visible while servicing the less prosaic signifying systems of the unconcious ith its multilple displacements, substitutions, and playfulness.”
The Critical Image: Essays on Contemporary Photography, Missing Women - Giselda Pollock
 
The text was sourced from advice articles in women’s fashion magazines and paired with faux editorial shots.
