`I produced these series of images in hopes to pair them with a more flattering version of myself which I would more comfortably share with other people. I chose to focus/incorporate the areas of myself which are someone unpleasing to view for the large majority of society or insecurities of mine (self-harm scars, tattoos, nipple impressions, visible labia lines, belly, acne etc). I wanted to do this to emphasise the reality of how I look when I know no one is viewing/judging me. This is how I am most comfortable in my self as I don’t have to fear how people will perceive me, I plan to contrast a variation of this image with a perception of my self which I am comfortable for others to view me.
For this experiment I took a photo of my mum asking her to smile, I then took the second when I told her to be silly. I wanted to do this to show the contrast in behaviours we share with particular close relatives and images in which are more likely to be shared online.
I then went on to capture images of my cat playing with a feather, focusing on how to capture relatively precise images whilst in motion.
