Freaks Like Me: Yam Matoki
83*50cm Print, “Freaks Like ME” is a series of painting/photography that are talking about the subject of sexuality, gender and roles in our society. These prints are SINGULAR and come rolled.
Yam is handicapped. She has Apert Syndrome with the most beautiful face. I saw her first in a store and i thought that i had to photograph her and only after a while i even noticed her arms and legs. I wanted her to look clean, her look is inspired from the Nurse’s white robe, i gave her a blonde wig to make her seem even paler then she is. Celebrate your body, you are beautiful.
