Kathy Servian's entry in Australasia’s Top Emerging Photographers 2021 (presented by Fujifilm), Objectified, is a featured portfolio, and appears in the Art category.
The objectification of women's bodies has taken many forms over the centuries. Each image in the series Objectified explores the objectification of women and their bodies from a different perspective. Possession comments on the history of objectification. Until relatively recently the marriage laws in many countries named a wife as the property of her husband. Statuary explores the exploitation of the female form in art by referring to the Greek myth of Pygmalion, and Vixen comments on the perception of the perfect female form in Western society, and how women who do not meet this ideal are made to feel worthless.
Australasia's Top Emerging Photographers is the region's main platform for discovering and showcasing photographers at the outset of their careers and aspiring photographers. The competition is open to emerging, student, and amateur photographers. The prize pool currently stands at over $30,000.
