Throughout history, women and their image have been stereotyped. Although in the last decades many changes in our thinking have occurred, somehow, society still holds stringent ideas of what constitutes the perfect female image. When a modern woman looks in the mirror, she perceives any deviance from those ideas as a flaw. The pursuit of perfection has made us reluctant to accept the true nature of our bodies. Any imperfections go against the social ideal and therefore must be hidden. The preconceived ideas of how the female body is supposed to look create a veil that blocks us from true appreciation of the inherent beauty of the body.
In these photographs, light and transparency discretely conceal the “imperfections” from our gaze and present the body in a way that its qualities are shown with a dose of shyness. The distrust of the natural beauty of one’s body is thus disclosed in this project, making a statement about the progress of modern society in the acceptance of the female body as nature intended it to be.
