Argentine Photographer Re-invisions The Dynamics Of Femininity Through Female Boxers
When just about any female pop music video is released, it seems that a concerned chorus chimes in (and rightfully so) about the often one dimensional portrayal of women in media, and its pernicious effect on young women and men in the world. And while slicked down skin isn’t going to be plucked from marketing strategies any time soon, there are photographers who provide dynamic depictions of the modern woman that challenge our understandings of what we consider to be “feminine”. Such is the case with Claudia Gaudelli’s “Women Boxers”. In the series, Gaudelli highlights the lives of female Argentine boxers, which are less Nicki Minaj and more gritty, sweaty and over all real. We encourage you to check out the entire series at Lens Culture.
