Male vs Female Athletes in Media
We read an article called, ” Framed and Mounted : Sport through the Photographic Eye”, the author highlights the difference between male and female athlete photos. So, I decided I wanted to find some contrasting examples.
Like, Tim Tebow showing off his strength and power.
While female athletes like Danica Patrick’s cover looks slightly different
It is sad to see the way that female athletes are used to convey sex and male athletes convey strength. Overall, I believe that it depends on the athlete’s persona as to what they will allow the media to portray them as.
