In today’s world, to slow down and appreciate is rare. To truly appreciate the reality in which we live, even more so. That reality though, for each of us, is created by the one thing that remains constant throughout our lives: our bodies.
This collection of photos is designed to be a stopping point, a point at which we step back and appreciate our bodies for what they are when they aren’t rushing or filtered or airbrushed. Our bodies carry us through life and this is what they look like. From face to hand, head to toe, in motion and in detail, these are our bodies. May we see them truly in all their glory, may we learn to love them, and may they carry us with strength and grace through the reality that we create together.
Margaret Burneske was born in 1996 to parents that are both artists, one engineer, and both photography lovers. She started photography in early college years with a family Nikon. Photography became a daily pursuit for precious small moments in the tapestry of everyday life. She has since moved to Japan where she is developing as a candid portraitist, a street photographer, and a lover of soft and hard lines alike. The desire is always to keep growing, keep challenging herself, and to keep an eye out for the small magic moments that are all around us.
