Below is a rather feminine portrayal of Lennon in her pearls. 🙂 I tried to mess around with consumerism as well. It’s interesting that, even though I have enough of Rush’s clothes for her to wear, I find the need to buy her pink, purple, and girlie outfits so that she’ll appear more like a “girl.” Why do I do this? Maybe because society tells me she should look and wear “girl” like clothes, just as I do myself. What if Lennon really liked to dress in boy clothes? Am I, as Lennon’s mother, constructing her identity as a female? These are questions I was toying with in coming up with possible ideas for constructing photographs like the photographers that deal with gender issues. I plan on composing another set of photographs that show Lennon in Rush’s clothes. I also find myself wasting money, wasting in general and participating in mass consumerism. I was thinking about Cindy Sherman and Catherine Opie while constructing these photographs, but I will elaborate more later. Just some food for thought.
