I created these photos with my iPhone. The image on top is how I present myself in the world when underneath I feel vulnerable and without a protective mask. Both present at the same time. Neither of them really who I am at all. False identity when looking through the eyes of my ego and surface and not the truth.
I use my body in my images a LOT and often I'm naked. It's not about my form but rather the emotion. When considering body image - I do want to be clear that the images are not a study of my shape. AND I am always studying my shape in all of my images. SO I'm facing it even if the subject matter isn't about my actual shape - but instead is about the feeling of joy inside being vulnerable inside being free inside being sad inside being relieved inside being open.
This is one of 15 out of focus images of myself from my Ghost series. When I give my power away I remove myself from myself. I become a ghost to myself. Physically, Emotionally, Spiritually.
Today: Consider your body image - in relationship to your life right now and how you can use that to express something even deeper about yourself.
You don't have to be NAKED to tackle this one. And you don't have to use shock value to get a potent idea or emotion across.
