Maja Radosavljevic, former studio photographer, puts bodies at the centre of her work. By illustrating breasts of varying shapes and perspectives, the photographer points at the ‘most important female* body-parts‘ from a Queer Feminist stance.
Studio and fashion photography, as does society, describes and defines women* by showing their bodies in so-called acceptable shapes, which is nothing more than highly edited ‘photoshop fantasies‘. Thus, b-project is not just a call out for (self-)acceptance, gender diversity or what is understood as the female* body: it is a Queer critique of photography and society.
A significant part of the work involves self-empowerment and a joint artistic process. All photo titles and image compositions were self-determined by each person in the picture. B-project is still ongoing.
