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.

I feel like everyone should see this.

NSFW - THIS IS PERFECT

Somehow both reminds me of the 80s and very old nude body sculptures. And yeah, this is me. Been taking better care of myself and eating decently, sometimes I like to share things I’m proud of. ;P

Tattoo consult happened tonight. Got all drawn on. I am SO excited!
Bad ass mermaid chick with a trident and crown… epic flowing hair, octopus grabbing my ass, tree growing out of the underwater scene into a blossoming side and fall side, with owl flying away from branches on my shoulder.

Our skin. In it’s natural form. Pressed against each other surrounded by nature.

I do not find myself often appreciating nude women in photographs. But here, with the horse being bareback, and the woman in only cowboy boots, completely covered… There is something so perfect about this.
