The White Gaze explores Swedish identity through the use of visual norms and ideals. The work reflects on the invisibility that surrounds both the body of whiteness and the medium of photography. This project was born out of a desire to create debate on the current concerns of belonging in Sweden, and it aims to question why issues of tolerance and integration are always dealt with using the body of otherness. The White Gaze is rooted in critique of the physiognomic research produced by Herman Lundborg i the early 20th century.
