  1. The choice of lighting and patterns reflected on the woman’s body cleverly depicts a sense of objectification and violation. This photo is powerful and rich with emotions of fear, mysteriousness, and scrutiny. I think you did a great job of positioning the frame and shadows to emphasize certain parts of the woman — especially choosing to cover the face of the individual.

  2. The environment really takes away from the physical body of the subject where the focus is whats projected on her rather than the body itself. A connection is made from the bare trees and the body that leave a sense of emptiness that is emphasized by the darkness showcased throughout the entirety of the piece. I applaud you’re ability to de-sensualize the figure by the addition of its dark environment.

  4. I am extremely intrigued by the contrast between the starkness of the naked human form and the soft eerie aspect of the shadows of the outside world. If this was merely a photograph of a building or the silhouettes of tree branches it would not be nearly as striking. This photograph is matter of fact, it does not shy away from confrontation. This photograph challenges what is “safe” in artwork and does so beautifully.

  5. I am very drawn to these images. I absolutely love how the light illuminates the body and sort of hides the face. It gives me a sense of boldness and confidence . The patterns created by the shadows catch your eye and allow you to gradually work your way around the photo. No part of the image just falls off and that make this image amazing to me.

  6. I really love all the shadows that sort of dance across the body. The catch my eyes and allow me to gradually work my way around the photo without parts of the image falling off the page. There’s something rebellious about the way the light focuses on her body but hides the face. It creates a sense of boldness and confidence. The stern look on her face also attests to this.

  7. The projection on the naked female body is really powerful. Projection functions as the part of image and light at the same time. I also like the huge contrast between the figure and background, which really highlights the objectified women body.

  8. I’m fascinated with the idea that while something is being projected onto the woman’s body, the woman seems to be the one doing the projecting in this image. Projecting vulnerability, strength, and truth.

  9. Both images are very pleasing to look at. I like how the background is completely obscured and the focus is on the women. In the first I really enjoy how I can tell what the image reflected on her body are. In the second of the reflections are more obscured is nice as well. I think having the variation in the obscurity of one and the reality of other is gives a well rounded representation.
