Body images (meu corpo, min kropp) is a photo essay about the distorted view of the female body – enhanced nature’s way. The project starts at the body being noticed for the first time, then it goes trough transformations until it turns into sculptural, almost abstract forms.
By using food products such as peanuts, cantaloupes, and oranges I create the effects I want to show. By playing with different body obsessions, such as cellulite and hanging breasts my wish is to invite the viewer to participate and identify themselves with these figures. The theatricality of the character and the use of strong color help me be more humorous and light-hearted about it.
This body of work is very personal to me as it is the first time I am stepping in front of the camera.
