Just the right amount.
A word with no literal english translation except something along the lines of “just right”, Lagom seemed the perfect word to choose for this photo series.
I found out last year that someone close to me has suffered from an eating disorder for nearly half of her life. It crept into her life ever so slowly over the years, seeking control. No body is perfect; I hope we all have the ability to come to terms with that at some point in our lives. This series was not about documenting an eating disorder, but a way to illustrate an individual healing process and journey of self acceptance.
Staying grounded amongst nature and being connected with her body and mind is something essential to her personal self acceptance and body-loving healing process. To me, these photos capture a sense of movement. I wanted to evoke feelings within each viewer; to imagine themselves within each moment and come to their own conclusions through self reflection.
