The body does what it wants. I am not the body: I am the mind. And my mind is bipolar. My body, once thin and slim, has now changed shape and size. Every day is a struggle, but as I have accepted my mind, which for many people makes me a sick person, I have accepted my body. How does a woman’s body change with her cures, her medications? So it is difficult to accept: you are different not only in the illness, internal and intimate but also on the outside. Yet I am happy to be my mind. In my mind. To accept me for everything I am.
This set aims to represent the change that a woman has to face when she is in the situation of taking psycho-medications because of a mental disorder. In the case of me, this is bipolar disorder. The medications changed my body, making me fatten by 25 kilos. Events of this type can cause bodily dysmorphism, a disorder that is characterized by concern for one or more perceived facial defects or imperfections that are not observable or appear mild to others. This project aims to show how the eye of another person, in this case, the photographer with his camera, can completely change the perspective and perception that he has on himself.
