HEY BABY - CAROLINE TOMPKINS



Written by Jack Blocker

As part of her Hey Baby project, Caroline Tompkins is photographing every man who cat-calls her in the street. Wanting to dispel the notion that these acts are merely compliments, Tompkins has created a portfolio which exposes the men in a pretty unflattering manner.

As you may notice, all of these guys are either black or hispanic - a subject that Tompkins has danced around with all sorts of bewildering platitudes about privilege and gentrification. Let's just hope this project doesn't reinforce any stereotypes or mistruths, as it would be a terrible thing to suggest some races are more misogynist than others.

See the rest here.

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
