My most recent work revolves around the female form. Emphasising shape, symmetry and line through the use of black and white collages of my own photographs, I want to explore simplistic surrealism to the female form. The history surrounding the female nude is loaded with sexuality and subconsciously objectifying the body. I wish to divert the eye of the viewer away from thinking about sexualising it in any way, and disconnect my work from the sexual aura surrounding the whole genre of nude photography. Having people understand all parts to my work is important to me, and by displaying the body like this, I wish to bring a new appreciation and acceptance to seeing the body as a form of art.
