Lizzie Wolff - Self-portraits

Lizzie Wolff is an American woman who, just like Jen Davis (see here), uses nude self-portraits to show a different kind of body in photography, that most called fat, but also to create a visual diary of loneliness, inner mood, surrounding atmosphere. All this provides a proximity, an intimacy with her that is rather consolating after all. And the beauty and the charm of this woman progressively become an evidence. I don't think her approach of photography is similarly inclined to create a body of art such Jen Davis one (and Davis does not show her nude when it is the real subject of Wolff work). And the general feeling is much less desperate than Jen Davis one. But these are really fine pictures. You can see her deviantArt gallery here.
