Melting the image that unfreezes your gaze
Madrid
Photographs, editorial
2020


Editorial story for Wül Magazine

The editorial offers to discuss the subject of normativity and stop to think about the topic of the male gaze in art and photography. Marcos del Rio and Aimar Odriozola, contemporary dancers, become an essential part of constructing and allowing the fluid form in the story to emerge. The body movements, the extended black fabric, the improvisations on set come to symbolize the necessity for fluidity.Unmelting the gaze is a fundamental appeal that comes in a physical form of unmelting the frozen images supported by a deeper-rooted idea of diversity and acceptance. Maite’s intention is to allow “the opening of a path that allows everyone to be free from the constraints of binary gender.”
