Series
"In My Skin Series". This series is about young people under 25 in the UK who are challenging their body image. Sank looks at those who have had or are considering having cosmetic surgery in order to become more acceptable to themselves and achieve their ideal of being ‘beautiful’. Social consensus in Western society today is particularly focussed on physical beauty and achieving and maintaining the “perfect” face and body. Intertwined with this the photographer also documents body dysmorphia as young people try and conform to this social expectation resulting in eating disorders and body transformation. Lastly Michelle Sank documents transgenderism and the struggle young people have to live within a body they were born into but have no affiliation with.
