The imagery for this composition was sourced from three different locations. Firstly, the Kleinmond Harbor in Cape Town South Africa, Then of course the old telephone booth which I captured at a bar in the middle of a Nature Reserve known as Mabalingwe.

I am so over what mankind believe the perfect body should look like. Why the continued need to sculpt the earth jump suit that they have been given, carving away bits and pieces to try and achieve that "perfect form", but instead just deforming themselves in the process.
