Harry Potter ♦ a scene you wish was in the movies: the importance of pruning “diseased” family trees
Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

All I can think is how much better I would feel if media were to feed me with pictures like these in all the magazines. Because these photos made me feel so much better about myself in seconds, imagine what a lifetime of photographies like these would do for someone’s confidence? I love this to bits, it’s beautiful.
We lose Martin today so we will have finished the first six weeks of shooting with Martin, then he’s got to go back to the UK to do another season of Sherlock.
