Basking under the sun, or leaning before a light, the femmes fatales in Martine Gutierrez’s photographs stare their subjects down. If not transfixed by matters outside the frame of the image, these women lock eyes with the viewer. Each series of photographs was produced for a multi-page spread in Gutierrez’s Indigenous Woman magazine – a glossy affair replete with beauty advertisements, fashion spreads, and a letter from the editor all featuring the very same model, stylist, photographer, writer, and editor: Gutierrez herself. In their titles, the images cite the page numbers in which they were first presented in the publication, insisting on a sequence and seriality to the lavish scenes.
