Look Both Ways:  Young men as subjects of the photographic gaze is an exegesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy by Drew Pettifer

“This project revolves around practices of looking. Specifically, it centres on my role as a queer artist looking at and engaging with young male bodies in the art-making process and, by extension, what effect my looking might have on the subjects I photograph and the viewers who look at these works.”
