Petra Collins photographs The Female Gaze

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.

From prom night, cheerleaders hanging in bathrooms and young powerhouse Tavi Gevinson, Collins sure knows how to capture the teen girl experience. She is also acutely aware of the way we consume images, naming this collection after Laura Mulvey's theory of The Female Gaze. Is she presenting us with scantily clad women so we question why we're looking at it? Or is she proving that women share the same gaze as the male voyeur? Hmm.
