HMN CREATIVE x CHELSEY SINCLAIR
Unlike the immaculately smooth curves of traditional bodyscapes, FOLDS highlights the soft spaces of the human body: the bumps, lines, and marks that are typically hidden away.
By focusing on these “flaws,” the photographs feature our textures and colors as exquisite, making them necessary to the composition of the photo.
Magnifying these folds separates them from the recognizable human figure that we’re instinctually trained to judge, and redirects the viewer to appreciate the natural human form.
Chelsey is a film and digital artist originally from Los Angeles, currently living in New York City. Her work uses the beauty and fragility of the physical form to convey the shifting moods and emotional states of the human condition, drawing on lighting, mood and a sense of place to transport and transfix.
