Laura Mulvey

Laura Mulvey published a theory called the 'male gaze' this is the idea that we all view media such as film with a males point of view.This is portrayed by the camera angles used to show the female body, for example the why the camera works it's way up the female body normal starting from the bottom at the females shoes then slowly moving up it normal stays on bum of the subject for a while then moves up the body. Suggesting the camera is viewing the subject how a man.This is where Laura Mulvey theory came from.
