ARTISTS STATEMENT
Like many women, I have had a hard time appreciating my body and sometimes think negative thoughts about my sexuality and the way I look. I did this project because I believe all people should be comfortable in the nude, and should be encouraged by society to celebrate their beauty. Female bodies should not be hidden away, and the way society makes us hide our naked bodies causes women to become uncomfortable in their own skin. Doing this shoot made me feel so much freedom, and actually helped me truly love my body without shame. It is so sad that most women will never get to look at a photo of themselves in the nude in their adulthood, and even if they did they would likely feel embarrassed that others were viewing their bodies. I think it is so important to feel confident in your own body, get rid of these skewed perceptions we hold about our naked bodies, and be able to celebrate our bodies freely.
