Statement

Hester's most recent work You Take My Breath Away (2014) is a series of photographs which fuse 'lad's mags' and trophy hunting magazines to probe constructed gendered subjectivities. Using found images of trophy hunting photography and studio fashion portraits; the work aims to challenge harmful media representations, which condition females to be submissive, sexual and available for the male gaze.  Inspired by an antique Shikari trophy hunting photography album, the images draw attention to the oppression, objectification and commodification of women and animals in patriarchal society and seek to unsettle modern trophy-hunting photography. Moreover, the work explores hyper-masculinity, an extreme form of gender ideology, which can evoke callous attitudes, aggression and violence towards women and sex.
