A series of (self portrait) photographs capturing the beauty of the human body beneath the skin.
A visual definition of vitality, self expression, individuality, inner beauty and humanness. The project will be a visceral experience exposing the anatomical beauty that lies within each of us, celebrating the visual complexity of our organisms and bringing awareness to the miracle of being human.

We will be executing this project with comprehensive makeup (body paint on bare skin), a unique set, dramatic lighting and a sequence of sensual poses. This project will be executed as a beauty study, not a gruesome exploitation.

Here are a set of visual references:

A few examples of my work:


I am pleased to be able to work with an exceptional makeup artist to bring this project to life. However, we are short of funds to cover the cost of materials and equipment to execute our vision. We need your help and support to get this project off the ground. Together, let's create something raw and beautiful to embrace the miracle of being human.


What your funds will be used for:
- Studio rental
- Lighting and equipment rental
- Props to create the set
