Alex Milnichuk’s photographs are inspired by a statement made by Cindy Sherman regarding her series Centerfolds. She stated, “When men are threatened by a woman they either place them into one of two categories, one a sexual object or two something that they can rescue or save.” Alex’s photographs are representations of how women in everyday situations convey their own
natural sexuality.

The juxtaposition of these women against that of the typical playboy centerfold
forces the viewer to not solely see the women as sexual objects, but also as strong confident
beings. In today’s society a woman’s sexuality is judged more so by her outward appearance
rather than the actual person she embodies. Because of this, Alex felt that it was important to show the everyday woman’s natural aplomb in herself.
