Catherine Meadows Weekly Post 3

1) what are the artist’s technical choices?
Schorr switches from both black and white to color photographs. There seems to be no pattern as to what made her choose one or the other for each picture. She also takes her photos at multiple distances from her models, some up close and some far away. The majority of her models are nude. which contrasts her major interest in fashion.
2) what are the artist’s conceptual and/or thematic intents?
Schorr's conceptual idea is to play with the concept of femininity and masculinity. She is also very into fashion and tries to use that to compare it with gender. She is also playing with the idea of gender identity. She shows this by having her models pose in ways that suggest femininity.
3) how do you respond to these choices and intents?  
To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of her work. It's not awful, but it's not something that I found particularly interesting to look at. For this week's blog post I wanted to try to write about an artist that I didn't really care for. Because of this, I of course found that it is extremely difficult to write and try and interpret what purpose the work is trying to serve.
