There could be thousands of photos of you online; photographic ‘selfies’ contrived to capture your best angles and features. How many really show how you feel about yourself and your body?
In a quiet gallery-setting, you are invited to hear the audio portraits of strangers revealing the stories and the secrets of their bodies. Eventually, in a cushioned and sound-proof booth, you’ll be invited to undress and confess, contributing your own self-portrait to the growing archive.
The Naked Self is a chance to share in the uniqueness of every body.
