B – Project
In b-project Maja Radosavljevic, a former studio photographer from Vienna, puts bodies in the centre of her work. By illustrating breasts in different shapes and from different perspectives, Maja points at the ‘most important female* body-parts‘ from a queer feminist stance. Studio and fashion photography, as does society, describes and defines women* by showing their bodies in perfect, acceptable shapes. It creates a ‘photoshop fantasy’, an image almost nobody can achieve. Thus, b-project is not just a call out for (self-)acceptance and for a variety of what is called gender and what is understood as female* body. It is also a queer critique towards photography and our society.
∞ gender, female bodies are seen as constructed
