Dysmorphia  (2020)

     In 2020, a year when people got used to being seen through camera lenses, judged by their appearances, and felt the pressure to always look flawless (even with a bit of help of digital filters), I felt the urge to talk about how we see and present ourselves socially. 

     I used the "Body Dysmorphic Disorder" -  a mental health disorder in which you can't stop thinking about one or more perceived defects or flaws in your appearance, as the starting point for my project. 

     To illustrate that concept, I photographed vegetables and fruits as a metaphor for our own bodies, using magnifying lenses to alter their appearance and expose natural flaws or defects to the viewer.
