Black and White di Thaniel LeeDal sito del fotografo Thaniel Lee, a proposito di Black and White:

In this world of plastic surgery shows, model search television programs, fake talent shows, and unreal reality TV. I attempt to show a body that cannot change, a body that no amount of plastic surgery will turn into a super model, a body that is not seen in pop culture magazines or MTV […]. I have chosen to document the body as seen through the lens of the camera; the body in which I chose to document is my own. I was born with a condition called Arthrogryposis; this condition has left me with limited use of my arms, legs and fingers. Eleven operations have left me with many interesting scars and stories. Starting in 2000, I began to document my body and the many different shapes contained within. I hope that my work makes people look at their own bodies, and question the existing concepts of beauty that fill our current body obsessed culture.

  1. fa davvero riflettere…anche perchè oltre all’ossessione della cura del corpo purtroppo prende piede in parallelo anche il rifiuto del diverso e del brutto.
