The ISM Art Prize

Folio: "ALL_IN_ALL"
"This shoot was important to me to show the world that fat girls can be sexy too and to open up eyes. My sexuality is one of the most important aspects of myself and for society to turn around and tell me that I cannot be a sexual being purely because I don't fit into the classic model of beauty is a great tragedy."
$250 prize!

"This is the second shoot that I have done for I Shot Myself. Spacewise, I still had to use my apartment, because it was difficult finding an outside area that I could be alone in, but also warm! Winter, right? What a killer. I actually found this one a bit harder to do. Filming it at the same time made me a little bit more self concious and I started looking at the way my body looked from different angles a lot more. Altogether though, it was still fun, and I'm pretty happy with the way it all turned out!"

"I was a bit limited for locations to shoot in because I have a housemate who is far more conservative then me! So a lot was in my room and bathroom. I mostly shot with items that I like. My teddies, they are 10 years old. The collar I am wearing I found at a garage sale for $3, I've had a lot of good times wearing that collar! The shoot definitely made me feel more "normal" knowing that so many other people are looking for that sexual creativity outlet and I Shot Myself gives you that opportunity. We are all sexual beings, why do we have to hide it?"

"That was such a spectacular hour and it went so much quicker than I thought it would. We somehow managed to avoid being seen by about 10 people walking past. This has been so wonderful, I honestly can't recommend doing this enough, it's been the most beautiful experience for me. I've had a lot of issues with my body in the past and I'm really trying to get beyond that, and things like this make it all feel worth it. Getting to a point where I feel comfortable doing this is so special."

"The creativity allowed for our folios is pretty exciting! I would love to do another shoot at some point as I unfortunately ran out of time for the project and had to rush the shoot, much more than I would have liked to. I decided to base I Shot Myself around my daily routine of getting up and getting ready. I'd like to thank my house mate for his assistance (We'll call him "Chuck") for letting me use his bathroom for the shoot."

"I'd picked up a mirror with Jesus in the middle of it from an Opshop the day before - I had no clue that I would later be using it to shoot myself in! Taking the photos in that mirror definitely made me laugh and loosened me up to take some other different photos."

"This project was beyond my comfort zone. But I had fun doing it. I went a little crazy by painting my whole face, trying to mimic a galaxy pattern but turned out like an alien instead. Honestly, I love being photographed, in general. But this time was different. I had to be fully naked ! At first I was unsure and I wish I could be a supermodel where stretch marks don't exist on my butt. But hey, seeing myself naked in the mirror and in the camera made me realise that imperfections make you perfect!"

"I really wanted to shoot myself with the period topic. So you need to plan everything really accurately, I needed the camera on a specific date, but in the end everything worked out pretty fine. I'm usually wearing a menstrual cup, instead of tampons - so I wanted to show my Lunette to everyone. In my opinion menstrual cups are one of the best inventions. It doesn't harm your vagina, doesn't dry it out, doesn't stink - it just collects your blood. I took the pill most of my lifetime and then switched to an injection which I got every 3 months. I didn't have my period over 6 years. I always felt unhygienic having my period - omg blood. Better don't show it and don't tell anybody, especially not men, that you have your period. Getting more into feminism I've learnt having my period is one of the most natural things in the world, and that blood isn't dirty. I started researching and reading and felt for the first time positive about my period. It took a long time till I got back natural cycle, after all the hormones I took. But I was really happy the day I got it back and one of the first things I did was to start painting with my blood. I read about blood paintings before and wanted to try it immediately. This was also a reason why I choose to draw one for this beautiful project. Red nail polish is usually sexy and a lot of women love it. I was told by a friend that she never wears nail polish, besides when she's having her period, to cover the blood on her fingers, when changing her tampons. And if you run out of lipstick and you've got your period - no worries mate, just use your blood as lipstick and it suits your skin perfectly. Nail polish and lipstick perfect combination :) I also shot a lot of pictures in the park in front of the house. The only problem is, the park is in front of a church and a school. I've choosen Saturday as shooting date, so I won't offend some school kids. Maybe it was because of the first sunny day in a long time or because it was the day after the Doggies won the Grand Final (Go Doggies!) but heaps of people were walking past and I'm 100% sure some of them saw me shooting myself naked. But that's alright, I guess I won't see them again, at least I hope it. One guy even greeted me walking past, I'm still not sure if he was just nice or caught me taking pictures. The topic of this shoot was completely different, so I wanted to produce a different kind of emotion with it."

"I have never taken nude photos of myself before. When I got the opportunity with ishotmyself I decided it was time to explore the taboo of nude photography. It was shocking how comfortable I was doing it and I found the experience overall a truly liberating one. It gave me a better understanding of my own body and allowed me to be less critical of it."

"I went to this burned patch of forest that just started coming to life again. I love the contrast of blackened trees, young green fern shoots and my naked body between all of that. I feel like one of the ferns, I'm just starting to uncurl...."
