Mapping the Body_______3

Drawing attention to the knees. Aided by fashion. 

The Hooker Boot - over the knee boots made famous by Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Purpose to provide padding to hookers knees whilst pleasuring men.

Taylor Momsen as always looking like a dirty... or both?

Knee High Socks - heavily related to the obedient and 'innocent' school girl image. 

The knee seems to carry a 'femme fatal' image. Fashion helps to ruin the strong independent woman of the 21st centuary. Instead it shouts 'Hello Boys....Im here to serve'.

How do we view knees? ...Sexy? Seductive? Saucy?

I looked into female role models of the past and present and its ALL about the knees!!

The poses of these women are playful and suggestive. The knees are a focal point within the image. They act as a guard to their most intimate parts. Knees are therefore a tease ...a reminder that approval for admittance is required.

New Project :D I choose the Knee at random. I've been researching the knee for over a week now. Something that has really interested me is the nerves/veins within the knee. 

All of the veins gather at the centre point of the knee. They remind me of a collection of main roads entering a city and joining in a mass around the outskirts of the city. 

The knee is a hub of activity. A central point in our ability to move and aids or impedes our ability to go about our daily activities. Similar to he function of main roads within a bustling city centre.
