Meet the Artist saying Fuck You to the Male Gaze: Gender Trouble

FGUK Magazine presents “Gender Trouble” a project by fine art photographer Anna Sampson who graduated from Chelsea College of Arts in 2015 where she began the project.

The series intends to challenge the notion of gender identity, both dominated and defined by centuries by the male heterosexual gaze; Sampson seeks to subvert and overthrow this binary; to transcend and negate gender cliches in order to demonstrate that gender, like sexuality, can be fluid and non-binary.

In a comment on her Series, Sampson states: 

“Women have always faced – and continue to face – being objectified and commodified by male sexual desire. “The male gaze is toxic and dull – it’s time for a change. By photographing the male as more sexualised beings, and women in typical conservative male attire, I hope to provoke the status quo and challenge the societal constraints that we, as “the other” have been subjected to. Alternative gazes are so necessary – and these identities are mostly always marginalised, criticised and segregated from the masses when they need to be represented and celebrated as equals. This is my attempt to challenge that orthodoxy and fight for equality.”
