• This project explores the observer’s perceptions of abstracted parts of the body. The body itself was photographed in segments. Each image was then sectioned and framed to create a disconnection to the one before whilst allowing it to be recognised as the same subject.

    When a representation of the body is viewed as a whole, depending on its scale it can create a distance from the observer and expose many social meanings such as gender, identity, youth, beauty, and age. Moreover, it can promote the idea of otherness and differentiation. However, when fragmented images of the body are viewed they become abstract and ambiguous. The viewer’s perception then changes; cropping the part from the whole has taken away the subject’s social coding and perceived differences and has made the object more neutral and familiar to the viewer.
