"The physical body I inhabit on the platform is a more stoic version of my vulnerable self."


Today, I'm very comfortable in my own skin.


Not all days are this easy, but I venture forth into battle regardless.

I've worked all over Toronto as a nude model for the past five years.

There's a very specific moment of disassociation that washes over me as I ascend the model stand and enter a place of acute self-awareness.


This feeling peaks as I disrobe, and gently dissipates as my body and mind sync into familiar rhythm. The physical body I inhabit on the platform is a more stoic version of my vulnerable self, often hidden behind a stone mask. My flesh may be exposed, but I'm safely enclosed within an impenetrable force field that can't be seen.


This project piqued my interest as an opportunity to explore my dynamic relationship with nudity while safely nestled in the comfort of my own habitat. The shoot was light and playful, and I felt totally at ease with Joslyn. It was quite refreshing to shelve the mask and allow my invisible shield to fall.


Stand tall and battle on, fellow naked warriors!
