He’s just a simple man trapped in a confusing world of lingerie. #innocent #naive #boyfriend #lingerie #whut #howdoesitwork
I wear makeup because I like to wear it- I like playing with colours and I never find it a hassle or a chore. I don’t have many photos of me without makeup (like 3 or 4)but I like these two. And these were taken a year ago and will probably be the last natural photos I will ever take #nomakeup #blackandwhite #darkhair #natural
Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.
