Angela Christine Smith Explores the Body in Dissections

The Dissections photography series by Angela Christine Smith analyzes the human body as well as self-acceptance.

Her body is covered in various tattoo-looking drawings of her internal organs, including her lungs, her veins and muscles and her rib cage, literally demonstrating the connection between the person and their bodies. She uses her skin as a way to give us insight into herself, expressing who she is and exposing her inner beauty. In some images she hooks her mouth on a chain, showing us how gruesome it is when people treat their bodies like a piece of meat in a butcher shop.

The Angela Christine Smith Dissections series demonstrates a struggle between self-acceptance and body image.
