London-based artist Hester Jones‘ work combines culturally constructed, gendered identities in patriarchal society and human and animal relationships. Her newest series, You Take My Breath Away, investigates both of these subjects in an imaginative way. I love the juxtaposition of trophy hunting images and commercial fashion pictures—the objectification and conquering of both animals and women; the individual titles, like Cat-calling, Endangered, Game Over, and Man Eater. The images remind me of work by Yasser Aggour or Brooks Dierdorff‘s Trophy series, with an angle criticizing the representation of women.
