Diagramming Something Missing: The Display of Fashion Beyond Gender
This project researches how producers of fashion photography actualise the fluidity of gender in an industry dominantly established on modes of production and consumption based on the gendered binary womenswear / menswear. The fashion editors, art directors and photographers who took part in this research operate their practice as an exploratory space to challenge the bond between dress and gender. Throughout series of interviews with each participant, diagrams are activated to reorganise transcripts into manifestos uncovering different means of making a gender fluid approach to fashion more visible in visual culture.
The project has obtained the 'exceptional' distinction in Visual Sociology at Goldsmiths University.
It is currently being displayed at the Philadelphia Museum of Arts.
