F087 : Being One Among Many, Each Unique


F087I decided to pose for Idan, because I had never posed nude before and the concept's originality hooked me instantly. My tattoos and other body modifications often make me the object of photographer's interest. Here, I knew I would be amongst others, all different, all unique, and it’s an idea that spoke to me.

Speaking for the experience itself, I wasn't searching for thrills, rather an honest depiction of my body as seen by someone else, then reflected back to me like a mirror. The hardest part is to see one's body under all its different angles, with all its faults. I believe that, in front of a mirror, you never really see yourself as you really are. Here you have a 360° vision of your body, and it's not always easy to see oneself directly, honestly, without artifice. It's more or less accepting your body, your nudity as a whole, an ever-changing entirety of flesh. In my case, I quit smoking two years ago.

The vision I was presented of this body was no longer the one I remembered.
