So today we’re talking body…language…yeah… smiles…
First of all I have to admit that I’m absolutely in love with how the pictures came out cause when you have an actual picture in your mind of something you want to create, the perfectionism can most of the times be in your way and in the end you’re disappointed cause most of the times that picture in your mind will only exist in your mind (especially when you shoot on film…Jesus mother of Mary laughs…)
Anyways, this blog post is called “Body” and I love it cause I love puns and the fact that I want to talk about bodies wearing a body makes me giggle every time thinking about it..
Why do I wanna talk about this?
A: The constant comparison of our physical appearance is pretty much at its peak at the moment.
B: Women are still to this day treated like objects…when they’re “attractive” - “in the eyes of society”
C: Question for B: What is attractive?
D: Nudity…interesting topic…so taboo but at the same time so desirable.
Okay…this actually is ridiculous cause I don’t understand it and it’s a fact that I don’t really have one but for some reason my most liked picture on instagram is one where you see my “bum” in a pair in Levi’s………..and every now and then, when I post a classic holiday bikini pic, it instantly gets much more attention then any of my other pictures.
I think the answer for this is still: Sex sells.
Something that on one hand bothers and on the other hand fascinates me.
Well, it bothers me cause I love clothes laughs and I find it very frustrating when you put all your creativity into something but it doesn’t really get the attention that you have wished for and then you do let’s say something a bit more “revealing” and it might get surprisingly a lot of attention and then you ask yourself (Well, me at least laughs) Why? ...again.
It fascinates me cause of its simplicity. We all have a body obviously and human love to look at other bodies. (I’m constantly blushing writing these lines but at the same time enjoying it cause it’s a pure topic and literally human.)
This really goes hand in hand with Self-Love. Bodies are beautiful in my opinion. No matter how they look or not look, they’re beautiful. I see them like an art piece, cause yes we all have a body but we all have different ones. That’s the beauty of individuality and we should embrace that or better still, we should celebrate that!
Acceptance is the first step for a more positive mind set. I know, it’s hard sometimes and I’m also still on my learning path with it but you have to remember this:
Just BE YOURSELF because everyone else is already taken!
And to be honest everyone else is boring smiles you should be proud of YOUR beautiful masterpiece called body and sorry (but not really) all these fucking “perfect” body images you see nowadays in the media and in magazines are not real cause perfection in my opinion is imperfection and it truly is a decision that depends on you:
Are you perfect?
The answer is…YES you are.
“Revealing” fashion in public.
Oh dear god…this is a topic these days that makes me really angry and when I say angry I mean it! (Full stop. – just to make it clear.)
From a feminist perspective, we have the freedom to wear whatever WE WANT as a woman. So if we wanna be a bit more sexy on one day, I don’t wanna hear anything. If we don’t wanna wear a bra and it could be that the nipples flash through, I don’t wanna hear anything.
…Cleavage…I DON’T WANNA HEAR ANYTHING!
Basically you should really think twice what you say to a woman cause we aren’t objects! We are beautiful, I know smirks but we are humans and humans must respect each other!
We should be allowed to wear or not wear whatever we feel comfortable in whether you like to be a lil nuder than others or be completely covered – it is your own decision and no one else’s business!
So lets feel free, enjoy life and start getting those beautiful bodies moving…
