These are songs about the specifics of emotion, losing a friend and overcoming fear by realizing we are all here together.
I don’t know how many will see this, but this is Christina Osborn, a local St. George Utah girl I know who has a dream, and is only 195$ short of her goal. Kickstarter ends in 58 hours. Check. Her. Out. <3
Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.
One of my assignments for the Foundations Class I’m in (Offered by Center’s for Spiritual Living) is to choose an affirmation and repeat it a hundred times or whatever a day. I am thinking this is what I’ll experiment with. :-P
