This is part of the first series of portraits which illustrate the character beneath the surface of small town canadian women. Each subject has sent intimate digital images of themselves nude to the artist, something which now is much more instantaneous than before due to the easiness and accessibility of the internet and digital cameras. These portraits question the distance between subject and viewer and how we look at people. It is an intimate investigation of women's identity and sexuality in a post feminist era, where a woman can be a sexual object for herself.
