This project represents an idea, a naturalistic concept of the recognition of our bodies as they are.
Find the beauty, recognize it, love it and accept it. This makes you unique, tells stories that have made you wiser. You are a human being, you are real, your skin is real, it is your protection; therefore, a skin completely even and “perfect”, is a person who needs to live more.
Imperfections make us perfect.
The human body is diversity, therefore, standardizing the perfect body is an abomination.
This project arises as a protest, enhancing the details of the skin of many people, showing marks full of beauty that should not be censored or edited.
The skins project does not have an aesthetics of color and defined composition. It is about making very closed shots, making the frame a flat image, where the protagonist are the marks that have been edited in a subtle way, to highlight the scars,
stretch marks, varicose veins and other.
The project is not finished yet, it’s a collection of photographs of skins that I’m starting.
So far, it has been done entirely with a Sony a6300 camera, a 50mm lens and ambient light.
The editing was done in Lightroom in a very basic way, I only enhanced the skin marks, adding more texture and contrast and sometimes I modified the color temperature a little, cooling the tone to generate more tension.
This project is under construction, therefore I have not made any exposure. However, there are few people who have seen the photographs. They feel captivated, sure of their bodies, proud of their brands and that often they want their skin marks to be photographed and be part of the collection.
My work is full of naturalism, I try not to saturate the composition of my videos and photographs, since my purpose is to sensorially transmit a concept, an opinion and feelings.
