Projects – Skin-to-Skin


Would you like to take part in a photography project?

Volunteers Required

I am creating a series of photographs for my final major project for my Photography BA(Hons) degree to highlight the benefits of skin-to-skin contact for health and well-being.  When skin is touched, signals are sent to the brain and hormones such as oxytocin are released which have such a benefit for us.

My aim is to photograph as wide a range of people and types of skin contact as possible, such as:

  • Breastfeeding mother
  • Parent with baby
  • Parents with child
  • Grandparents
  • Couples
  • Holding hands
  • Hugging
  • Cuudling
  • Sensual touch
  • Massage
  • …etc.

I will create hand-coated kallitype prints, a Victorian process, toned with platinum.  Finished work will be exhibited in both London and Manchester at my graduate showcase, plus at my solo exhibition in Blackpool.

Sessions will take place throughout March and April at my studio in Cleveleys and will probably last around an hour.  I can guarantee your safety and you will always be treated with respect.

Please contact me via the contact form on this website if you are interested in participating or would like further details.

Thanks for looking,
