A feminist approach to street photography is examined in Panizza Allmark’s photographie féminine. The approach drawing upon écriture feminine, women’s writing which highlights the significance of reflexivity. Photographie féminine is a dynamic visual response that seeks to challenge dominant representation by framing disparate elements of social realities through the use of dialectical images. The tactical techniques attempt to critique patriarchal constructs and the gendering of space. It involves a queering of space and exposes the heteronormative aspects of representation of gender in the city. The approach uses tactics of subversion to reveal deeper meanings hidden in plain sight.
