Call for ladies to model
I’m currently working on a project which will probably turn into an e-zine type thing that is going to be set in one location (an awesome massive trendy studio) in Sheffield Centre. It’s gonna be based around female sexuality.
One thing about my own sexuality that I find curious is that I have a multitude of different sides to it, but most men only seem to see one or two.
For example, I’ve had boyfriends think I don’t know what other mens ‘intentions’ are because I’m so naive, even though I know exactly what’s going on. I’ve had men think I’m a cute silly little girl, who they can hang out and play computer games with and who likes shopping and lipgloss.
To my dad and a few of my ex’s I’ve been a virgin mary figure. Who has only slept with a couple of people and probably didn’t enjoy it.
Other people see me with kids and hope one day we might have some so I can cook chicken currys and special soups for them too.
I’ve been ‘the other woman’ and compared to ‘angelic girlfriends’ who would no way partake in my sluttish behaviour.
In all honesty, I am all of these things, all at once. I try to induce patriarchal feelings and dominance so people will want to take care of me, part of my sexuality is to have a body that will produce babies that I will be able to both feed and comfort and part of my sexuality is to know when it’s appropriate to be plain old filthy. Part of being a woman, for me, is being able to balance these identities.
I see it in other women, but I want to photograph it and clash the identities together express that a woman can be a slut AND a virgin mary mother type. That women can enjoy sex and still cry to disney films. That a woman can use her mouth on a variety of different surfaces, and be innocent, rampantly sexual and maybe a little manipulative and deviant all at the same time.
So I am looking for women, don’t have to be models, who don’t mind being exposed for the multitasking freaks that they are.
I have no specifications on a looks basis only the following;
1. You must think you are sexy, even if no one else does.
2. You must be comfortable with being seen in a sexual context. This is not going to be pornographic but there will be some models I’m shooting who are happy to be seen nude. You can remain clothed but please take into consideration you may be in a publication with naked women along side you. (I say this as I had a model complain that she appeared next to a topless woman in Google Images, which is just… ugh, she made me take it down!)
3. You must think my Pinterest inspiration board for this project is cool. Check it out here… http://pinterest.com/Katiesoze/mary-street-project/
