United Bodies

United Bodies

I created the project in 2018, when there were a lot of worries, I was an actress and noticed how the leaner women underwent casting tests, there was no diversity of bodies and talent was not the most important thing, it bothered me. When I decided to make the career transition to being a photographer, I thought I'd talk about this subject, the importance of diversity. The project started in 2018 and is underway to this day, each meeting is new learning, it is a community that is formed, where connection and exchange are fundamental.

Before we start shooting a conversation happens, and lots of laughs, stories, and shares, it's an immersion where everyone lives a different story, but we're there with a goal, to show that we have different bodies, and each is wonderful the way it is, our bodies are ours, and only we have the right to give an opinion on it.

I work on the technique I learned in the Theater, called improvisational contact created by Steve Paxton, which explores improvised movements, where one body connects to another, creating a connection through touch, showing its Vulnerabilities. Addressing personal issues, where each one expresses itself freely, plurality, poetry, and art, the visual image that crosses the skin, showing the natural beauty of each one, are characteristics that are part of the project.

Each woman has its uniqueness, with the aim of talking about the importance of diversity, unity, and freedom of the woman's body, United Bodies portrays real bodies without manipulation in photoshop. Starring trans women and women, she explores social narratives encouraging future generations of women to be empowered.
