The collection of work titled Light Becomes A Body is now a campaign on Kickstarter.
Light Becomes A Body is an artistic response to societies body shaming culture and the pain and fear it causes men and women alike.
The technique uses artistic light patterns projected on nudes to highlight areas of a persons physical attributes and decrease emphasis on others.
For the individual, the goal is to help them feel more beautiful and mysterious. To see themselves in an entirely different light.
The larger goal is to help train the viewers eye to look more closely through the lens of beautiful imagery and gain a new perspective on the subject. The eye is initially attracted to beauty from the first glance and therefore continues to look through that same filter. As the viewer continues to interpret the image, the initial perception guides the mind to keep expecting to see more of the same.
Models are of all shapes and sizes and all have experienced body size, shape or blemish issues. This exhibit helps to create a new perspective.
The Kickstarter campaign is called Light Becomes A Body and will end on 3-12-19 so don't delay. Hard cover photo book and individual prints are the contribution rewards and are shipped within the USA only.
Please help continue this work for the future and support the campaign.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
