Justin Bartels - Impression (2012)
I can’t not reblog this.
This is the best thing on the Internet. We undress everyday and it shows us how confined we are. Those imprints show how uncomfortable we are throughout each day just to impress other people. We create prisons in our own clothes. We are a prisoner in a socially constructed idea of what is beautiful.

Collected into the series Instinct, Anna di Prospero’s images arise spontaneously, as the result of an inner strength, a primordial instinct that led the author to the realization of photographs seemingly disparate and free from any initial planning. Produced between 2011 and 2012, the images differ between self-portraits, genre beloved by the author, and portraits of her boyfriend; fragments of faces (lowering eyes and smiling, talking or kissing mouth) and body (such as hands or the backstrips immortalized often during tender hugs) were associated to an architecture or landscape detail belonging to her mental archive, in which the author experience’s images are. As final choice, Anna Di Prospero composed in diptychs these shots with digital elaborations of photographs of water, clouds, flowers, grass, rocks, dirt and dust.
