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 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.

Imagery in the media is an illusion built upon lighting, angles & photoshop. People can look extremely attractive under the right circumstances & two seconds later transform into something completely different.

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.

Alle volte semplicemente le persone mancano ed hai bisogno di vederle, averle accanto, anche se non puoi toccarle.

I can’t stress how important this knowledge is. Once I realised that I chose whether someone’s negative vibes affected me (hell, even my own negativity), I found that life is a lot easier.
I used to drown in negativity, in a downwards spiral until I didn’t see any light in life and I didn’t see the purpose of life anymore. My therapist then taught me this, and it changed my life completely.
