for my final media project, i decided to focus on the way women choose to present themselves and the idea that victims of sexual assault should not be blamed because of the clothing they wear. that regardless of the amount of skin they choose to show, it does not excuse rape, ever, and it’s always the fault of the attacker.
i have taken 10 portraits of 10 girls, wearing various outfits. then, using photoshop, i erased the clothing to leave only skin exposed, highlighting the actual amount of skin shown.
by removing the clothing, it created an objective view of the body, and aims to remove stigma associated with certain items of clothing.
i aimed to question society’s perspective on rape culture and female promiscuity by asking ”how much skin is too much skin?”
