In this series, Recuerda examines the nature of skin from a variety of individuals, creating a set of raw formalistic pieces that naturally present symbolic and identity-based connotations. The goals in Recuerda’s series are to create a sense of ambiguity and render all viewers unsure of what section of skin they are seeing. This will ignite a sense of intrusion of privacy and possibly even discomfort.
There is a strong sense of individuality throughout this series, which at times may be highlighting areas of concern for the subject. Within this framework, however, we celebrate all areas of skin that are not “perfect” and remind ourselves that even though we all have parts of our bodies that we dislike, we are still beautiful.
