Every human being has its own special curves and angles, proportions, and colors. We are so diferent, and in the same time so similar to each other. Human differences is somehow a taboo, because of the constant media pressure of looking a certain way. Society has made us so aware of other people’s filtered perfections that we often forget to look at our own magnificence and the strength and beauty that our bodies manifest.
There are two things to know about me : I’ve always loved black and white photography and I’m an avid admirer of the 1920’s and 1930’s. The glamour, the jazz, the fashion, the lifestyle!

The one that caught my eye and made a deep impression was the work of Jaromir Funke.
