Approach to Fear XIII: Pain - Destruction of Cause
Alexis Hunter. Approach to Fear XIII: Pain - Destruction of Cause,
This sequence of photographs of a burning shoe was made in 1977 as a challenge to fashion and gender stereotypes. The sequence shows the shoe gradually being burnt down to the sole. In an earlier version, the shoe is taken off and the wearer massages the incisions the shoe has made in her flesh.
