To Just Be
Evelin van Rei ― Photographer
This project is a collaboration between artists Cox and Rei, exploring prescribed gender and beauty expectations through female nudes. Embracing and challenging the female gaze, as both are each other’s subject, that of the ‘gazed-upon’, as well as the photographer, that of the ‘gazer’.
For Rei, the project is a continuation of a deeper study and confrontation with herself. It introduces a more direct, exposing and narrative expression. Bringing disturbing psychological states to the surface by revisiting trauma.
