Battlefields of Identity: Bryn DC’s Cinematic Explorations of Gender and Power

bryn-dc-19

“Future Fatigue” is a series by photographer Bryn DC that represents the conflict and violence perpetuated by hyper-masculinity and gender inequality. Working alongside feminist artists, writers, and filmmakers, Bryn arranged apocalyptic scenes where the models—dressed up as gang members and renegades—posed in bright, bold defiance to conventional notions of femininity and the male gaze. Makeup and costumes are brilliantly synthesized in dramatic, story-filled images that symbolize Bryn’s anxieties about a world where power imbalances have spiralled out of control.
