Where were these photographs taken?
These photographs were taken in Ramona’s house in Cornwall, UK.
Some words about the photographs…
I’m constantly wanting to try out new things and I think it’s interesting to photograph a person’s body and the shapes they make and how to display that in a flattering and/or non flattering manner. I think isolating the body in this way will make me a better photographer, particularly when it comes to boudoir styled shots.
There’s also an element in here of social commentary. I would love to be able to push on and do more images like these, and work with people of varying sizes, different genders, different ethnicity. We live in a society where to a large degree, we cover the parts of our bodies that we think aren’t either socially acceptable or beautiful. From my experience, it’s peoples scars and lumps and bumps that tell a story. Imperfections are perfection and I’d love to build on this idea.
