Butch - Kanithea Powell while it is a refreshing take on butch looks and shows a lot of different styles, including lots of make up, and it's cool that not everyone is white (as in a lot of butch photo projects), this was still really disappointing. main reason: a lot of the pictures look like they could be taken right from some mainstream fashion magazine. everyone is thin, has perfect skin, small breasts, everything is neat and tidy. there is no context, no stories about the models. and "thin people in mostly masculine clothes" isn't a more radical interpretation of butch, it's just more easily consumable because it conforms to mainstream ideas of beauty. queer politics are stripped away and replaced by quotes about finding your inner beauty and stuff - which is nice, but not really butch specific.
