I’ve been thinking about the male gaze and how problematic it can be without also considering how productive and empowering it can be. Sure anything can be over-sexualized, but when I shoot these black men I feel like I’m shooting myself. Since I’ve started this project, I’ve felt the need to protect their bodies like I would protect my own. I have a better understanding of why women express the importance of women shooting women in vulnerable or nude situations. #35mm
