The female body exists in media and in our sex-saturated world.
Listening to a thousand opinions of beauty while seeing heavily edited images sometimes makes it feel as if our bodies don't even belong to us anymore.
In mid-October, Lithuanian photographer Neringa Rekašiūtė teamed up with television host Beata Tiškevič Hasanova and communications specialist Modesta Kairyte to create the photo series Mes Moterys ("We.Women"), which challenges women to acknowledge and own the way their bodies look in a full-length mirror.
Rekašiūtė told Kulturpolis she hopes to help women see their bodies as just one of many facets that make up their multi-dimensional selves.
Every day in the streets, stands, display cabinets, online, on television and in the press, we see the beauty of a woman standardized polished samples. It's sort of mass hypnosis.
