About the Artist
Through unconventional forms of photography, Paloma Mayorga documents the interaction between her body and other natural objects to create elaborate self-portraits that beg the viewer to consider the subtleties of touch. Her photographs, created with the use of a scanner, are inspired by ecofeminist philosophies and explore gender politics as well as human behaviour.
