Body Art

I aimed to capture the body in its natural state, with no alterations, and present it in a way that made it seem more like a work of art and not just human anatomy. I got as close as my lens allowed me to, and as I did I discovered the human body actually is composed of all sorts of patters that can exists as works of art on their own. I saw how hands could look like tree trunks, or eyes like water in a pond, or even how taste buds could look like pebbles. Through my work I learned that even those things which we would never classify as art, like our hands or feet, actually create beautiful compositions. I found beauty in how everybody has different configurations and no two body parts are the same.
