Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The following research proposes a dialogue about the manners on which a woman look into another woman with the camera on her hands. Reflecting since the history of photography and the female presence’s inclusion on it, the former and domestic acting of the alleged woman amateur photographer, to the eternal inquiry of visual representation within a patriarchal society. By presenting many photographers with distinct projects on photography, scripts were made to interview three artists, to develop a signification about the simultaneous effects and the empathy that characterize the production among women. The answers – between the dialogues and platonic monologues described in the dissertation – constituted a perspective’s constellation that is unified around the common expectation on female’s imageries: a more representative gaze.
