    Abstract

    This dissertation will discuss photography and realism, looking into how photography is used when it comes to representing certain social constructs and identities such as class, gender and sexuality and whether or not the medium depicts a true representation of these constructs. The methodology when researching into the topic includes primary research such as my own analysis and interpretations of visual sources relating to the topic and secondary research including various scholars and artists, along with websites and books.
