Agency Studies

A 35mm film photography project examining the power dynamics between the photographer, the viewer, and the subject. Specifically focusing on the female body, I aimed to give the subject as much agency as possible throughout the photographic process.

By giving the models a say in the posing, lighting, editing, and selection of the images, I created a collaborative effort that empowers them through these choices that affect how they appear.

One of the tactics I found gave the subject more power was allowing them to see their reflection in a mirror while being photographed.
