ARTISTS STATEMENT
As an artist I've seen my share of female nudes. Some are docile male fantasies, others are unapologetic feminist statements of subjecthood. Shooting myself was an exercise in the latter. Joining the ISM movement was a deliberate choice to align myself with other strong and unashamed women, who I see in other ISM images and also in my day-to-day life. I am a feminist and a performer, and every opportunity I take to show my real, fleshy naked body is a statement that I own myself, I am proud of myself and I will not apologise for myself.
