In this peaceful outdoor body-positive portrait session, Ms. E and I spent some exploring what it means to reclaim the right for our bodies to move in and enjoy public spaces. I’ve found that one of the best ways to support people in this is to give them lots of things to do where their bodies interact with the space in nonthreatening ways. I had Ms. E blow bubbles, eat, meditate and wade in Washington’s Green River and explore how her body felt in each activity.
We produced some beautiful images together, but just as important, we made a difference in the way she moves in and experiences the world.
