Hey Arlice, check out this bagel



Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.

Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.

Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

just sent to me on twitter by @FreijaFreija. fantastic….

I am really interested that there is such a variety of “attractive” poses, but all the “unattractive” ones are basically identical. Is this the least attractive pose that we can think of? I feel like I can come up with something more gross.

Is there more beauty in uniqueness, but all ugly people look the same to us? I’m puzzling on this one.


V Laroche for Studio 211

I have been eagerly anticipating this!

Hey guess what— NYC July 6-10, 2013. You know how to reach me.

My friends are printing a conceptual nudie art mag. It’s going to be worth checking out. Please help make it happen!



Thanks for the article, but if they had asked they would have found out that its just one photographer that shoots all of the Studio 211 Work. With lots of help from models, friends, family, New York City, and Craigslist. Thanks either way for the coverage.
