Full Description
Are we all the same when behind a camera lens or is there a feminine gaze? Does it make any sense to address the gender issue with an impersonal and neutral medium like photography? The works of Julia Margaret Cameron, Florence Henri and Francesca Woodman seem to provide an answer: despite different techniques and formal approaches, their portraits show a common sensitivity that affords the viewer a journey through this representation of femininity. In their photographs, all the women portrayed offer themselves to the viewer with their presence and demand to be acknowledged. Only in this way can photography be the space where self-identity is put to the test, the place where objectification is escaped and where a dimension can be built in which the eye and the body offer a single vision - and any linguistic reference is subservient to a new investigation. Text in English and Italian.
