ARTISTS STATEMENT
I think nudity is a very wonderful but ordinary area of existing. I think photographing nudity, especially in this shoot where I took many photos of the same naked body (my body) made me think a lot about how I view nudity especially when looking back at my photos I realised every photo, angle and slight modification to the pose made my nudity look different. I think there is a lot of mystery to nudity and the naked body but also a great sense of freedom when exhibiting it and capturing it on camera. I also thought a lot about the relationship our bodies have with our environment when taking these photos. I think my personality was captured not just in the background of my bedroom but even in the closer pictures of just my body. Bodies are such personal things.
