Desire & Disgust (redux, 2015): #11

Jaclyn Alexandra’s thoughts regarding ishotkatemoss were directly influenced by a discussion in the SVA class of kate being one of the most reproduced figures in the world. This led to the use of the scanner as a mode of reproduction and manipulation.
She indicated that working on the ishotkatemoss project was a respite from her typical documentary and portrait photography as she began toying with themes that she usually would not investigate, including focusing on gender roles and the male gaze of the female body. 

I was influenced by the idea of the ‘feminine grotesque’ and the notion that the female body and its functions can be considered both beautiful and grotesque (at the same time). I worked to create these monstrous images of Kate Moss in a way to process such an idea.

You can see Jaclyn's portraiture, photojournalism, and editorial photography at

Just like the SVA students ...  
Observe. Slow Down. Shoot. Submit.
