Chapter 4:  Photography and the Human Body

Double Je

Pierre et Gilles is utilizing the bodies as objects by creating fantasy worlds of and around them.  The subjects are classified as objects within a scene, and in this case, a fantastical scene.  We are drawn into the photographs because of the saturated colors and the way that the bodies are placed directly in the middle of the photograph.  Their intent gaze at the viewer is not welcoming or joyful.  There is also a sense of fetishism in the way they are dressed.
