I was losing my hearing and eyesight. My body was shutting down because it was working so hard to keep me warm. I had frostbite when I came back. I don’t think you can go to Antarctica and stand in a bikini without that happening. But I didn’t die, and I’m OK now.

Reperformances

For the entire life of photography, it has been both an index of the true, and a highly mediated experience. Ansel Adams called his darkroom manipulations “fixing god’s mistakes”. Magazine covers often express heteronormative Western values and impossible fantasy bodies. In this series, I attempt to twist my not-so-flexible body into the shapes found on a range of magazine covers. I use Lightroom to dodge & burn and to adjust color & contrast. I do not use any Photoshop magic.
