Some interesting info: This is very reminiscent of the Baby X experiments, in which it was discovered that people reacted differently to a baby’s behavior depending on whether or not they believed the baby to be male or female. People were asked to watch a video of a baby reacting to a startling image (a Jack-in-the-box popping up), and describe the baby’s emotional state. When people believed the baby to be female, they described the baby as being scared and upset; when they thought the baby was male, they perceived the baby to be angry. This was very telling, as it showed that literally identical behavior could be construed differently based on the perceived gender of the subject.
Now imagine a lifetime of gender specific socialization- male anger is par for the course while the same emotion in a woman is personal weakness. Ha oh sorry don’t have to imagine THAT’S REALITY
A few weeks ago I organized a shoot inspired by the works of Gustav Klimt. Specifically, his gold leaf technique and the gold and floral themes in his paintings were so fun to experiment with. I worked with amazing Manuela Herrera (mua: http://manuelych.tumblr.com/), Katelyn Mcginn (hair) and gorgeous girls.
