The Year In Pictures interviews Lilly McElroy, an artist who takes photographs of herself literally throwing herself at men. Apart from all the heavy gender-socio-dynamo analysis these images inspire, they're also just fun to look at. Whee!
I started the project by placing an ad on Craigslist looking for men who would meet me at bars blind date style and let me literally throw myself at them. This worked fairly well, but limited the # of photos I could take. Now , I go to bars with a friend/photographer and approach men who are physically larger than I am.Link (Thanks, Susannah Breslin!)
