‘The Way Eye See It’ – Soham Joshi

‘The Way Eye See It’ is a photo series that showcases ‘the body’ in a form that is not used to the generic eye. My idea behind this concept is to desexualize bodies, human forms and show them blended in nature. I want to showcase and celebrate the raw, natural beauty of the human body. This series strives to start a discussion about this topic with a broader audience that is not conformed to just the art circle.

“To be naked is to be oneself. To be nude is to be seen naked by others and yet not recognized for oneself.” – John Berger, Ways of Seeing

As a photographer who is fascinated by the forms and textures of things I see around me, I have been shooting abstractions for a year now. I got into shooting bodies inspired by the same stream of thought; my goal always has been to celebrate bodies and help others perceive them as a work of art.
