Gender Evolution

Third photo assignment.

We were asked to describe our relationship with gender.  I told my teacher the only relationship I had with gender was the relationship with the feminine side.  I was then told to explore the opposite gender.  I decided I'd do a little evolving in my project.  The first picture would be very feminine, and slowly add masculine elements to following pictures until the last picture was completely masculine.

My main focus was obviously elements of clothing.  I started off with feminine clothing and accessories.  Slowly, girly pieces would fade until eventually I was 100% in my brothers clothing.  Along with clothing, posture also evolved. The images start off with very proper, feminine poses and transform into more relaxed, masculine poses.
