‘You look somewhere else, then you see something different.’
– Mehmet Murat ildan
I saw a tweet this week about early erotic statues of women. It was suggesting that the rounded, curvaceous shapes of this early art were because the artists were women looking down at their own bodies. This viewpoint provided a different perspective and, therefore, these different shapes.
I love this! What a celebration of our bodies; what an introspective and personal celebration.
Of course, I have been paying particularly close attention to my own body recently and the changes it’s going through, and I thought I would try photographing that same view from above.
And I like it! I like these curves – I like that my belly already obscures my feet entirely, I like the depth of my cleavage. And I like looking down on my body from this ‘new’ perspective with a new introspective mindset.
