PHOTOGRAPHS OF WOMEN
Hazel Hurley is more than a photographer- It is her intention to make images that challenge the view of the female form for her viewers, using a nostalgic yet contemporary context.
Her latest exhibition 'Concupiscience' is a study of the male gaze and the way that the female body is the object of Hollywood's blatant scopophilia, which recently showed at London's Freud Bar.
Not all her work is overtly sexualised as much is portrayed from her perspective of being a woman too.
Experimenting in natural surroundings, themes of youth, femininity and trauma are explored, often leaving the viewer feeling more than a little uncomfortable.
Distorting traditional versions of beauty, Hazel has a niche of juxtaposing man-made materials into real life settings which distort the normal view point.
