The shooting “Caged Bodies”, despite the metaphorical name, is about freedom. About choosing yourself, your desires and self-expression.
We declare that any gender is the nature of a person, not the ideology of others.
How often have we heard “be a man” or “girls don’t behave that way”?
Female traits are described as emotionality, humility and modesty, male, on the other side — cold-blooded, uncompromising and leading. Such statements support the stereotype of “typical” gender behaviour.
People around us decide how to look, what to wear, and how loudly to answer questions. Throughout our life, our body is a subject of regular evaluation and approval. After all, then you will be normal and won’t be judged. But not every man wants to be bold and rude. And not all the girls plan to wait for “the only” who will solve their problems.
