“When I Think About Me, I Touch Myself” by Stephanie Cammarano (NSFW)

I’m interested in the ways we spend time alone and how much there is to learn about ones own body, lights on and hands in motion. There is a fine line between you and I, between myself and this, and I’m still searching for it.

Photographer Stephanie Cammarano and model Nicole Vaunt produced this series in a fluid manner, collaboratively constructing each shot. She says of working with Vaunt, “I hold such a high regard and admiration for her because of the way she understands composition, of the body and image.” They are exploring the raw and natural while evoking the sensation of being bound by the things closest to our bodies. The work is an artful conversation between garment and being.
