Our New Body – Solo Exhibition with Jedediah Johnson
March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us for our March exhibition with work from Jedediah Johnson! Below is a statement by Jedediah on his works.
“Our New Body is a series in which I photograph nude and near-nude subjects, bathed in colored light, in order to composite them together in Photoshop to create new bodies. I do this to demonstrate the beauty and oneness of all human bodies, not just the ones inside the incredibly narrow societal beauty standards. This oneness is apparent when body parts across race, gender, and body type lines blend together seamlessly, demonstrating that those lines don’t really exist. Subjects choose their own level of nudity and anyone may pose. This work strives to make people believe that their own bodies are beautiful and to try to break people of the habit of shaming people for having bodies that have absolutely nothing wrong with them.”
