Do you struggle with negative body image? Welcome to the club. Publicly we may insist that others are beautiful and worthy of love and praise, but privately we stand in the mirror examining and scrutinizing ourselves. We put self love on hold, only obtainable through the loss of extra weight or the clearing of a breakout. This project was born out of the shame and hate I have held for my own body and the challenge to find beauty in something I thought was so ugly and unworthy. “Before the Fall” is a 21 minute video loop projection which displays kaleidoscopic imagery of a body, my body, projected onto the ceiling. “Before the Fall” is best viewed by laying on the floor to look up and is meant to encourage a state of relaxation

Biographical Information about Author(s)

Amanda Yonushatis is a photographer and digital media artist. Much of her work explores ideas of belonging, self-love, intimacy and vulnerability. Her interest in this topic came from her work with the boudoir genre and the conflict she felt when clients asked her to heavily edit their bodies.
