Personal Experimentation

Continuing with the experimentation of photographing the body, I wanted to focus on the concept of how anxiety makes you hate yourself.

Although the marks left on my body within these images are physical, it represents the scars that mental illnesses leave as well as the struggle in having confidence within yourself.

Technically I am pleased with how the photos turned out. Using just natural light to create the images, I feel the blacked out background works well in highlighting the body, as well giving the images negative feel to them. I purposely didn’t include my face as I wanted the anonymity to give a feeling of uneasiness.

I want to shoot these images again, experimenting with photographing them outside, using the landscape in background to add mood to the images.
