Title: Angle of repose
Author: Pepe, Toni
Abstract: This thesis explores the notion of loss as an overarching theme for the examination of memory and the feminine as constructed tools for identity. Certain paradigms related to gendered roles, domesticity, femininity and the female psyche are investigated. The thesis also addresses ideas within Lacanian theory; concentrating on the male gaze, female representation and the artist as both photographer and subject. Absence and presence are also significant themes, as both narrative tools and as inherent photographic characteristics. The idea of loss is further emphasized by absence/presence within the photograph, calling to mind the relationship of the photograph to memory.
