Conceal the Body, Absorb the Self

Conceal the body, Absorb the Self aims to visualize the relationship between religiosity, traditionalism and fashion. Utilizing visual cues from biblical texts and fashion editorials, this publication juxtaposes stylistic decisions derived from contrasting sources. Glossy magazine-esque paper and sacred garments; texts touching on gender, sexuality and garment paired with instructions for catholic ceremonies. Through the pairing of contrasting elements, readers are prompted to question the dynamic between body, faith, uniform, and fashion.

This project was produced in collaboration with Ania Pravorotskaya
