The Sexist’s Alphabet. Whore. (Amended)

Whore-2

After a tutorial with Amelia, she pointed out to me that ‘Whore’ was possibly the most important image of the collection but it wasn’t really communicating. I wanted to confuse the viewer, to make them question what they were looking at and what it was that made this woman a whore. But Amelia pointed out that a woman is usually called a whore behind her back and by a group. We spoke about the pack mentality when men get together and how their individual personalities are lost as they try to act up to their stereotype. The woman is reduced to an object rather than a person. This name calling and slander would not happen in a face to face conversation between a woman and a man. There is always distance when this term is used. So I re-worked the image to communicate this.
