z celebrates the fetishism found within female sexuality, through a feminine gaze. The collection of photographs shot by Catherine P. portrays the intimate relationship shared between herself and z at home. She uses the natural power imbalance found in the relationship between photographer and subject to mirror the subversive power dynamic found within the sexual relationship she shares with z. The comfort of domesticity gives them the permission to explore desires that would otherwise be considered shameful and transgressive.
