“It’s a human body, and the beauty of it, a unique form of art, and of my readiness to make them shoot, now you have a plethora of meanings, and was to have the scars on my body to show it. That is where I am, as uncertain as it was. However, after a lot of embarrassment and now have been translated into comfort, the strength, the confidence, and the arts. I am proud of my body and be happy with my imperfections” sound, the on her Instagram.

in the human body. our own beautiful, and unique forms of artwork. my willingness to do this shoot, is that it has a plethora or meanings, it was to display the marks on my body, that i was once insecure about, which of course, with good lighting, become a little less noticeable and to showcase a story of a once-insecurity and shame, turning into the comfort, of empowerment, confidence, and art. but of course, with art comes interpretation, and unfortunately a misconceived judgement from the bc society tends to ruin the beauty in a natural state. @rechellealyse once told me that as a people, we have the right to remain UNTOUCHED even if we are completely unclothed. @espn #espnbodyissue2019.

“a line of dots following a pattern, but one stands out it’s clearly an outlier, ” that’s the direction needs to reroute. alienated and put to the side in order to not be seen, studied through a screen, thinking that maybe if we can match a name to it, and we’ll all suddenly become immune, like with any vaccine. experiencing anything that isn’t explained or doesn’t belong to the majority will-make-you-alone, and anyone who wants to stay “normal” will hide in order to not be shown. the outlying dots were marked on my skin to remind me that being different is no longer sin. these marks are in the calendar, or everyone fighting all around us. the ones that are no longer seen, because they were cast down. the ones that aren’t lost, just never wanted to be found. and the ones that just needed someone else to make a sound. multiple media, where too many negative energies can surface. as if not, kluwer law international, the hurtful message would somehow be doing a disservice. each time, my skin sheds away, making more room to grow. not to make room for anyone else, but to pay attention to my own ” true colors show. proud of who i am and what my body reveals, no longer am i concerned about who it appeals. too thin, too fat, but it’s not anyone else’s job to decide all that. having a voice loud enough blocks everyone else out, but when there’s that lingering doubt every compliment received will go unnoticed, like a drought. amour de soi is the only natural form of self-love. once that is reached, nothing will rise above. we weren’t meant to have it all, but to make the best out of what we have every single day. i’m proud of my body and all its imperfections, and that’s all i have to say.” ~ katelyn ohashi. @espn #espnbodyissue2019 photographer: @danascruggs ??
