Body Relationships  


The aim of this project was to visually communicate the relationship with our bodies - especially now as we're in a society where it's acceptable to distort and change our appearance on social media.

I wanted to bring this matter to attention to show that people aren't alone when feeling low about their own body image, everyone has these thoughts at least once in their life time. 

To create these images I undertook extensive research on all the body parts; from looking at newspaper/magazine articles to comments on social media itself, to gather all the text.

The image itself is built up upon layer and layer, including acetate and paper as well as digitally editing the image.
