The photographic series deals with body perception and explores the influence that photo and reflections have directly on our body image and indirectly on our psychology and self-perception.
I do strongly believe that nowadays the massive presence of (deforming) reflective mirrors and the spreading use of photo and selfie, creates a deep detachment of the perception of oneself from its own image. This false self-perception can grow into a full detachment from reality and can turn into a pathology called Body Dysmorphia.
Body dysmorphic disorder, still called dysmorphophobia, is a mental disorder characterized by the obsessive idea that some aspect of one's own body part or appearance is severely flawed and warrants exceptional measures to hide or fix their dysmorphic part on their person. In BDD's delusional variant, the flaw is imagined If the flaw is actual, its importance is severely exaggerated.
I decided to explore this issue through a series of photographies describing the body, distortion, deformation on articulations and limbs. The overall harmony/disharmony is conceived through composition and light.
