One of the most outraging aspects of our patriarchal society is the male gaze. Women are presented as sexual objects in the media culture and all the members of society are forced to look thought the male gaze. There is none who can deny that the objectification of women isn't imprinted on our brains. Most photoshoot present women either vulnerable or sexy or clueless (standing like a child, being cute) and it's rare to find a striking female photo, posing like a man with her chin up. For that reason these photos of Ponystep magazine are more than amazing!
I love the way Noemie Lenoir holds the male model like a child and he seems so vulnerable in every pose. His face is almost hidden in her shoulder and all we can see is his body,that's a classic way of objectifying a body. His arms are toned but in the second frame his little waist and the way that he arches his back evoke a feeling of submission.
I wonder if there is one person out there that can concentrate on Noemie's looks while a naked male model stands in "female poses". He still looks like a manly man, buffed with a stiff face but this is not a typical photoshoot, you know it isn't when you are not intimidated but instead you wanna touch his butt.
