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 fallen from the sky and plunged into the Salton Sea. The body mimics the form of the weightless birds in the background. The reflection of the form is contorted and is representative of the duress the figure is experiencing.
