I have an interesting relationship with Evolving Beauty Photography. I find local photographer Eric Boutilier-Brown and his work incredibly inspirational and beautiful but also potentially problematic? To start, I'm very much attracted to the beautifully structured and photographed moments that Eric captures. In addition to his incredible photography skills, I admire that he is able to capture women's experience with their bodies and their partner's bodies. However, I wonder if the male gaze operates in his photos. I also wonder about the role that feminine beauty ideals play in who is photographed and how. Nonetheless, the photos I've attached are some of my favorites, especially because I am amazed at how brilliantly they capture, at least partially, embodied and intimate moments.
