Ongoing project on body image and self image

 

 


 

A woman's relationship with her body is constantly influenced by outside forces. The constant stream of photoshopped and unattainable images combined with the cultural emphasis on beauty as a woman's worth, deeply affect women's body image and self worth.

Recent studies in the US show that 78% of 17 year old girls are unhappy with their physical appearance. Social media combined with the aforementioned stream of images are mayor contributing factors.

This series reflects on a woman's desire to be seen, inseparably coupled with her simultaneous impulse to hide herself.
