Motivated by the book "Complete Love", by Ingo Niermann, I decided to creat this series of on-going photographs. Like Ingo, I believe that all people, with all types of bodies, are sexy. This project intends to function as an infinite exposure of bodies, portraying their behavior on hot days, giving preference to beautiful elder bodies. With this, I intend to create a space that values bodies, identities and experiences.

"To avoid any physical discrimination whatsoever, an employer shouldn't be able to see applicants before or after hiring them. Telecommunications had long made this a possibility. Physical discrimination would then be reserved for private life only. And even there you could postpone it until after the alliance, as demonstrated by Islam. Covering up was a great egalitarian measure - if only men were required to do it as well. It meant an enormous civilising capacity, loving someone regardless of how they looked. Western modernity had distanced itself from this more and more. We might of course wonder whether love was ever regarded as very important traditionally."
