Expressionist Nudes

"In these images I was thinking about the burden women carry in our society as objects of the male gaze. My intention was to create sexually neutral images of the female nude. These images don't represent women presenting themselves to the male gaze; they represent women attempting to shoulder the burden of the male gaze."
