ViewPoint Photography Competition
Bin Feng, Oct. 2015
The Male Gaze
Bin Feng was born in 1989 in Shanghai, China. He received his BFA from Shanghai Institute of Visual Art in 2012. At the same year, he started the MFA program of Photography in Savannah College of Art and Design, where he currently resides. As the result of the language barrier, he becomes an outsider in United States. However, he takes the benefit of it and he is dedicated to act in the gap between the cultural differences.
The Male Gaze is taken from the photo series entitled “The American Dream” which explores of “American Dream” from an eastern male gaze. The true character concealed as the relations between classes is revealed by showing the capability of purchasing, and a social necessity has been secured in constructing the new spectacle as such an illusive representation. By staging the moment of daily life, the artist performs as an actor and jumps between the fiction and reality, which essentially conveys the notion of the history of a man is mobilized by images.
