Vonnegut defined a Karass as " the tangling of lives as free-form as an amoeba." They are individuals cosmically bound through haphazard divine fate, paths that seem to ziz-zag across the planet shyly to a meeting point and collide at a pre-destined meeting point in time. Hannah Saunders photographic work Karass explores this idea, constructing the foundations of her own entangled group like a jigsaw puzzle. The portraits are collaborations and celebrations, an ode to those who compel her. Through this collaboration the portraits seek to confront societal taboos around nudity, they are reminders we are not simply bodies destined for scrutiny and objectification. We are intelligent, conscious, organic matter suspended on a planet, as we hurtle gloriously through space.
