This photograph is an exploration of sexuality and nakedness, vulnerability and separateness. A women’s identity is sacred and yet it is often stripped down and defined by her bare body. In this series, nudity is no longer about sexuality, but about vulnerability.
The image is a self-portrait, a meditative practice, and a performance that requires a challenging stillness and trust in the environment. The dismemberment of the nude women’s body is simultaneously a beautiful and oppressive dialogue between the landscape and the female form.
In this image, my body has been decapitated by a charred tree. There is a stark contrast between the dead flesh of the tree and the pale flesh of the human body. The body and tree sit in stillness, as the fog’s envelopment is eminent.
