By provoking a inert feeling disgust, Rebecca has managed to project the disdain for her own body image through abstracted micro-photography. The use of biological elements, such as the bacteria from her hands is a coping mechanism for the insecurities that she feels in her own skin, and by breaking the body down to its most basic elements she can finally create a self portrait that expresses her uneasy feelings. Inspired by Victorian scientific photography and contemporary art alike, these images use elements of both modern and traditional to create a transition between both techniques. The work looks at the visceral nature of the body and how beauty can be seen in the most natural elements.
