  VEIL / CAP 74024   Series spotlight in C.A.P. 74024 “A Language of Body” Issue.  A photographic series exploring the relationship between sexual consumption and violence. Time and time again, we’re reminded that the two are undeniably linked. In studying the gaze as it applies to the male form—in the vulnerable state of anonymity—often placed on the individual without consent, I’ve noticed the ease in which viewers comment on the subject’s placement on the sexual appeal totem pole; a dehumanized vessel, valued entirely by said physicality with no regard to the entirety of their being. In agreeing to be photographed in this manner, veiling themselves, a play on reclaiming consensual anonymity while teetering on the idea of consumption—an act culturally reserved for the femme form—is born.
