The Glossy Magazine series forms part of a long term PhD project; of critquing the intentions of the creation, of gender coded mass media imagery. Photographic collages are created from selected contemporary fashion and lifestyle magazines.  The work seeks to highlight and interrupt, the intended service of the creation of gendered imagery  that is constructed for the consideration of women's lives. By interrupting the traditional ways of living, layed out in the origins of these images, these collage pieces strive to highlight modern day concerns of semiology within beauty standards, identity politics, and behaviours socially deemed 'acceptable' or 'appropriate' for female bodies.  The work also asks to what extent do we accept such gendered mass media imagery before it is deemed no longer acceptable?
