Second Skin

 

These images are from my MFA thesis project.  This project was based on the premise that we all have a body - the same body, whether it is large, small, male, female, or with different colors of skin.  We express our personality through the patterns and colors we choose for our clothing.  If we take those colors and put them directly on our skin, we show who we really are, and that we are more the same than we are different. The bodies have been photographed as traditional nudes, with directional lighting to show curves and shapes.
