Petra Collins

A photography series I was also influenced by was Petra Collins’ The Teenage Gaze.  Where she explores the experience of youth, particularly young girls through their eyes. Bring attention to a not so glamourous, intimate view of experiences like waiting for a lift, waiting for your friends to get ready, waiting to be legally allowed to buy alcohol, waiting for someone to have a crush on you.

Her work has been described as a “dreamy, hyper-feminine approach that sometimes appears under the headline “the female gaze.” With mainly portraits of young women that “seem to allude to the fact that they were created by a young woman. The subjects are seen in moody, inward moments that emphasize their interiority and hint at a larger narrative.
