Magazine 1: So It Goes no. 7

Public Defender Dean Strang, actress Lola Kirke, and a mash-up of So It Goes no. 7.

"In a world ordered by sexual imbalance, pleasure in looking has been split between active/male and passive/female. The determining male gaze projects its phantasy on to the female form which is styled accordingly. In their traditional exhibitionist role women are simultaneously looked at and displayed, with their appearance coded for strong visual and erotic impact so that they can be said to connote to-be-looked-at-ness.” 

Laura Mulvey - Visual and Other Pleasures

If you can overcome the language, there's something to be said for what Mulvey said.
