Often the way a person sees themselves sexually might not be the way others would expect. A person that should have no reason to feel inadequate about their body or sexuality might still feel insecure. I felt it necessary to produce the work having worked in the commercial photographic world for many years and the stereotypical point of views that it projects needs to be addressed.

How do you feel these specific narratives can be better approached in Creative sectors and how do you feel the public view (i.e advertising sectors) currently approaches such conversations?
MD: The discussion around sexuality and body consciousness needs to be approached in a more open manner. The more these narratives are pushed behind closed doors or seen as taboo the less chance we as a society will be able to deal with the current problems we encounter. As a society we are mainly exposed to a very narrow and distorted perception of sexuality, through advertising, films and media.
