Body Parts and Solarisation

Feminist Catharine MacKinnon believes one part of objectification, is when one views somebody just as mere body parts. Therefore, I decided to photograph people’s body parts, objectifying them, by viewing them as only physical matter. I used the Man Ray technique of solarisation, which created some very interesting effects when capturing body hair and tattoos. I would then arrange the photos into a grid, creating one image. To express that people are more than there body parts, next to each grid I would write about the person or feature an interview about their interests, aspirations ect. I felt this would create an interesting contrast.
