“Healing the disconnection

Through my shoot i want to heal the disconnection between the acceptance of the body and societies expectations.
By stepping away from conventional beauty and focusing on raw details we are able to tell a story of ones personal life and highlight individuality amongst a society of copycats.

There is still a preconceived idea of the perfect body type that is prevalent in the commercial industry as one needs to have a slim figure, flawless skin and strong features in order to be noticed by the worlds leading fashion brands. My inspiration came from designer Moto Guo who took the initiative to overcome these idealistic traits by enhancing natural blemishes on his models faces for his show at Milan fashion week.

Just like flowers, a natural beautiful element with different shapes, colours and sizes, so does the human body take on many different forms. Once we decide to accept the human body and all its different natural forms we accept our own individuality and we are able to reconnect with our true self and others in a more intimate way that goes beyond the outward appearance.”
