Finding an Image

Our essays, that are due for December, require us to study an image in depth. The tropes that I’ve particularly enjoyed discussing in our study group, and that relate to my Subject work, include the following:

  • Sheer fabrics
  • The conceal/reveal strategy
  • Artful teasing
  • The psychology of excitement
  • Lingerie
  • Freud’s Concept (trauma related fetishism) 

I’ve researched images that relate to these tropes. My choices for my image analysis consist of the following:

  • Bettie Page
