For her senior thesis at the Rhode Island School of Design, photographer Jill Greenberg created a multimedia presentation called “The Female Object,” a project wherein she argued that the panoptical male gaze has become fully incorporated into female consciousness. Her “End Times” series drew on the raw distress of crying children as a means to illustrate the macabre ethos of fundamentalist Christianity and its impact on domestic and foreign policy alike.

Greenberg’s newest set of photographs debuting June 16th at ClampArt is “Glass Ceiling.”  Some of the images feature members of the United States Olympic Synchronized Swim Team in the reasonable setting of a pool but with the unreasonable addition of high heels. The images focus on the interrelated themes of femininity, the marketplace and the uncomfortable implications of a world in which the former remains a commodity to be sold within the latter.

Greenberg’s work has been seen in such publications as Harper’s and The New Yorker andserved as covers for countless publications such as Time and Wired.

Greenberg will speak on her work as it relates to the range and history of practices of aggressive feminine body transformation, restrictive clothing and even corporal punishment of women.
