UtopiaUtopia is a project that aims to create it's own fiction based upon the tanning industry. The images have a seductive nature to represent society's strong influence upon us to become someone else's idea of perfection. Even though this is a place of sanctuary and a ritualistic way of life to many people, I personally look upon this as an alien concept and attempted to replicate this within my photography. I find a fascination derived how we choose to represent ourselves or manipulate our appearances in accordance to what we are shown is beautiful, in an attempt to appear forever young.
