Ashley Armitage is 21 years old and she is photographer and film maker and she is interested in femininity and her female friendships. Even Ashley Armitage is a child, she is interested in photography and films, in late 90’s everywhere is surrounded by cameras, cell phones with their cameras and also her first movie was Josie, Gemma, and Irene and she is also working at Girls by Girls Agency.
Now, Ashley Armitage has a photograph project about the annoying body hair in instagram users. So many instagram users think that her photos are so gripping and annoying. They criticized her to remove her photos.
So Ashley Armitage decided to add a caption about her photos ‘This photo does not break the rules of Instagram. This does not show ‘sexual intercourse, genitals, or fully nude buttocks,’ as their rules say aren’t allowed. There are millions of photos of girls in bikinis on Instagram. The censorship of a photo that shows a natural bikini line is like saying a woman’s natural body is obscene, abnormal, and unacceptable. It’s like saying that in order to be decent and acceptable, we must shave.’
“I’m interested in creating a platform for girls, by girls, completely the female gaze,” said Ashley Armitage. She thinks that she made scene of female young adulthood and She said that ‘The female gaze is media controlled and produced by female-identifying individuals.’
Ashley Armitage mentioned that “It’s often both me and the models deciding what we want to create together, and both parties have agency. I’m giving the woman power, not taking it from her and my friend who did the pubic hair photo, she’s always like, ‘Oh, take photos of my leg hair…take photos of my pubic hair; it looks so cute today.’ [And I thought], now is a good time to post this photo of my friend’s natural body, up close. It says, ‘Hey, we have a choice. This is beautiful, too.”
