    Male Gaze

    I'm currently doing a paper on the Male Gaze and was wondering if anyone can suggest any more examples of photographers where I can strongly relate the Male Gaze to? Currently I'm writing on Guy Bourdin, Helmut Newton, Edward Weston (His fun house mirror series and his nudes), Philip Lorca diCorcia, Steven Klein, Glen Luchford. If anyone can think of any more strong examples of power play via the male gaze that I can then research further, that would be greatly appreciated.
    But she expressed herself in many different ways,
    Until she lost control again.
    And walked upon the edge of no escape,
    And laughed I've lost control.

    You ought to look at Robert Mapplethorpe if you want to see some significant examples of the Male Gaze - he renders your concept of it highly problematic and you need to deal with that.

    The Male Gaze on Male Gays.

    I had no idea what the Male Gaze was so I had to look it up.

    I still don't know what it is and I'm not sure if I should look it up!

    I think Cindy Sherman had a lot of fun with the concept of the male gaze. I wouldn't exclude female photographers.

    What about some of the portraits by Irving Penn and Phillipe Hallsman?

    Definitely don't forget Ruth Bernhard - one of the best human figure photographers ever.

    For a truly extreme example, Joel-Peter Witkin.
