Another photo from the as-yet-to-be-titled project about female identity and body modification. Here again, I’m exploring the idea of binding and shaping.

  • Catherine Pasquale - Wow! Again, powerful image, Daphne! We are always bound, aren’t we…pointy -toed shoes, girdles, apron strings. Who’s tethered to whom? Why do we feel the need to limit our corporal borders? Maybe more “my body is cageD”? Can’t wait to see where you go with this!ReplyCancel

    • daphnechan - Catherine,

      That’s exactly what I was thinking about! Look at the ways we women alter or try to modify our bodies by constraining them is so many ways. You ask some very relevant questions. Who are we tethered to? A constructed image of ourselves that we try to emulate?ReplyCancel
