You Ain’t Got These (2007)

So when deciding on a topic for my dissertation, I wanted to do somethin that was interesting and academic, but fun and visually stimulating as well. After going through a few topics, I found inspiration in the most unlikely place…my sneaker collection. Which actually wasn’t that unlikely and in the end turned out to be a pretty amazing project idea. The project focused on a few things: First, it looked at gender dynamics in the subculture of sneaker collecting. So how women and men differ within the subculture, etc. Second, it looked at the different kinds of marketing that are used within the subculture. So the emergence of instore events, etc.

Here are a selection of photos from the project, some of which have become my favorite photos from my work.
