For my series, Outside Eyes I wanted to examine the relationship between personal body image and societal views. I shot half of this series using a mannequin and the other half as self-portrait to juxtapose reality with the perceived. I included hand written text in order to further communicate my own ideas and experiences. This body of work examines society's view of women and how this affects women's perceptions of their own bodies and their roles in everyday life. To create these images I scratched and burned the negatives in order to give them a destroyed look, I wanted to further explore this topic by working through the process of destroying and creating.
