Twenty-one-year-old photographer Petra Collins became an unfairly controversial internet presence last year when her Instagram account was shut down after she posted a photo of herself in which you could see her pubic hair. Soon after, she wrote eloquently in Oyster magazine about the stupid ways representations of the female body are policed. Here, we asked her to turn her photographer’s gaze toward the opposite sex, and the results are misty and romantic, like some present-day, male version of The Virgin Suicides.
