Warpaint Project Gender-Bends the Workplace

By Jules Ebe on November 17th 2013

Many people say “dress for the job position you want”. But what happens when that means change the way you look across the masculine and feminine spectrum?

When artist Coco Layne was interviewing for a job that would require her to present herself more in a more ‘conservative’ light, something her shaved head did not quite accomplish, an artistic project was born. After noticing the way in which she presented herself effected the way others treated her in the workplace, she set out to create Warpaint, a photo project that explored the changes from masculine to feminine and all the subtleties in-between.

It was comical how off-brand I was. ~ Coco Layne
