The subjects in Petra Collins' photography seem like they're up to something. With beautiful pictures of fresh faced girls smoking in bedrooms, hanging with their clique in bathrooms and looking sulky at high school, there is a definite 'good-girl-with-a-secret' Laura Palmer vibe going on here.

She is also acutely aware of the way we consume images, naming this collection after Laura Mulvey's theory of The Female Gaze.
