Gendered Assumptions (2010)

We restaged Brassai’s 1932 photograph “Butch and Femme,” which captures a gay Parisian couple out to dinner. Reimagining this photograph in the context of the 21st century leads viewers to question what it means to be queer, and questions the assumed gender roles of traditional┬álesbian relationships.
