‘Fuck me shoes’, 2010, is a single colour photograph of a woman wearing a pair of high heel shoes splattered with sperm, staring blankly at the viewer. The expression and pose refuse easy categorisation, and our ideas about who is in charge quickly start to unravel.

As more complex implications arise from a phrase that was long ago appropriated by the fashion and porn industries, ‘Fuck me shoes’ questions the female identity through the photographic portrait, where ideology, aesthetic and passion collide.
