My initial idea for this project started out with wanting to challenge social stereotypes, deconstruct them and find the facts and origins behind them. This would have allowed me to gain a better understanding so I could then reconstruct and portray this stereotype through photography. However, with COVID and a sudden lack of access to society I decided to investigate stereotypes I found at home and particularly gender stereotypes. My aim was to portray inherently feminine shoots with male models. An obvious start I felt was with make-up and dress but this felt very one dimensional and so I did more research into stance and body positions, finding that women are often shot in much more vulnerable poses, which I then over exaggerated in another shoot with a male model. I felt as though a final develop to this project would be to contextualise my work to modern day media. I took the most iconically female Magazine, Playboy, and redesigned it with men, for men.
