I Look Just Like My Mommy

Smith College alum and photographer Cass Bird challenges concepts of gender through exploration of a close friend. I took a closer look into Birds work around gender and specifically her piece 'I Look Just Like My Mommy'. Through dissecting what her androgynous subject is wearing in relation with the perspective on gender seen in parental figures. In response to Birds images, I shot more masculine and feminine subjects that are non gender conforming and attempt to define the relationship they share with their environment and body.
