66 Examples of Gender-Bending Photography

From Masculine-Designed Hosiery to Man-Friendly Heels

— June 10, 2013 — Fashion
Gender-bending photography is shaking the fashion and art industries by proving that gender-specific fashion is a social construct and can in fact be defied. These examples of gender-bending photography are striking demonstrations of that strong statement.

Each of these gender-bending photo collections depicts either an androgynous model or gender-neutral fashion option. One innovation that is both gender-bending and comedic is the lingerie for men. Designed by an Australian company, this lingerie was created to allow men to experience the softer quality of women's underwear. The collection features everything from silk nighties to lacy thongs, giving men ample variety to choose from.

Another, more politically minded, innovation is the gender-bending pregnancy ad which features a teenage boy as a pregnant mother. This advertisement shocked and surprised the world when it was released, bringing the issue of gender equality to the forefront of everyone's minds.

With these gender-bending creations, gender fluidity is more accepted than ever before. By shocking the world, this photography has made a strong statement regarding gender and its construction. With time, perhaps these photo collections will be seen as normal instead of bizarre oddities.
