Photographer Shoots Herself In The Nude To Make Point About Poverty
A woman has photographed herself naked in locations across to world to make a point about class, identity and poverty.
The project started when Magdalena Wosinska, from Poland, was studying photography and realised she didn’t have any fancy outfits to wear for her self-portraits
Speaking to Sakara, she said: “We were really poor growing up, and when I shot self-portraits for a class assignment, I thought, ‘Well, fuck, I don’t have any nice clothes’.
So, I took my clothes off. I guess you could say I started doing self-portrait nudes almost 20 years ago.
“My nude self-portrait work is not about sexual stimulation whatsoever. My self-portraits came from a place of poverty.”
Magdalena earns a living as a photographer, and her work has taken her all over the world, giving her an opportunity to take self-portraits in some breathtaking locations.
She has racked up over 120,000 followers on her Instagram page, thanks to her artistic pictures, and has shot campaigns for well-known names such as Converse, Urban Outfitters, Vogue and Spin.
She also has two books, ‘Bite It You Scum’ and ‘The Grass is Electric’.
