Essentially the pictures is about human strength and human exposure.
Unconditionallity and resistance.
Antithesis hard, closed, growing out of something.
In a try to give something it’s form, formulate me
around this, the images was created.
Torson’s shape have captured me.
The corset, the line of life that so beatuifully describes torson’s play of shape.
A piece of life.
