'Pause' applies found images taken from the screen, collected, and collated to repurpose and examine perceived masculinity and the queer gaze in cinema, with an original essay by William J. Simmons.

This compilation explores how masculinity is portrayed in film visually. Displaying the often-overlooked tenderness of men and the seemingly erotic moments where men could be seen as the object. These frames, often originally concealed beneath alternative context to give a motivation and render this gaze more palatable to a traditional audience. The conscious view that the male body can be seen as an erotic object has been ignored.
