Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

I’d like to cancel my subscription to Menstrual Cycle Monthly
I’m sorry, it appears you’ve taken out a fifty-sixty year subscription. However, we can pause it for nine months as long as you sign a contract that says you’ll take out a subscription to Baby Daily for at least eighteen years
Damn those Terms and Conditions.
i didn’t even read them i’ve made a terrible mistake
Say Something - A Great Big World w/ Christina Aguilera
I just am just kinda obsessed with how restrained Christina was on this. It’s not something I’m familiar with seeing from her. Also, I’d never heard this song up until yesterday.
Ugh when she has her little solo around 2:10. I just…I keep rewinding.
This song. Feels.
I listened to this 6 times in a row with my roommate… gorgeous song… beautifully restrained.
One of my favorite things out there, hands down. I’m in love with the style and music score, gives me chills every time.
That was gorgeous.
I got goosebumps when the violin came into play.
Fucking amazing work.
This is the entire point of human existence, and that is terrifying.
this is the saddest thing ever
Oh my god this is perfect
