Inspired by such photographers as Catherine Opie, Sophia Wallace, Amos Mac, and Diane Arbus, Mars Hobrecker aspires to take photos documenting queer politics, and life outside the gender binary with focuses on androgyny as it relates to fashion.
The photo above is part of hir series “F/M?”, which was inspired by the idea of what makes people male or female, and how they are perceived as such from the perspective of a third-party viewer. In this project, ze aims to distinguish the sometimes faint line between genders.
Using only cisgender models, a secondary goal of this series was to put them slightly outside their comfort zone, and temporarily (if just for a few hours) live as the opposite sex, with varying reactions.
Hir website can be found here, and it’s definitely something to check out!
