Our bodies change a lot over time and recently I’ve had some health issues, so for now my body is pretty much limiting me to shooting at the studio for a couple of hours. I’ve decided to use these two hours productively, starting a new photography project and so I’m looking for volunteers to participate. ‘Changing Bodies’ is about people telling their story about how their own body has changed, whether this was through be through inevitable ageing, weight loss or gain, illness, injury or surgery, having children, working out, or whatever it may be.
If you would like to be involved please drop me a message. It’s open to anyone and will take place at my studio in Thornton-Cleveleys over the next few months. The idea is to be photographed naked whilst sat on a stool and looking directly to camera, then to provide a few sentences or paragraphs about your body, how it has changed and your feelings about this. We will have a chat beforehand about how you would like to be represented and work together to achieve this. I can’t make any promises regarding how the experience will make you feel, however I can guarantee you will be treated with respect throughout and it’s entirely possible to be naked in the studio without having everything on show. If you decide it’s not for you at any stage, then that’s absolutely fine.
