Bodiessance /ˈbɒdiz səns/ is an online platform dedicated to the celebration of the body. It is an intersectional safe space for artists to share their perceptions and relationship with the body and at the same time tries to challenge stereotypes and prejudices regarding body image. Bodiessance universe is a blend of an online magazine, a website and an online gallery, structured quarterly on different topics regarding the body.


Our vision is to create a platform where each body is celebrated and everyone feels appreciated.


ANSKR by Anna Skorcikova is the founder of the Bodiessance platform. She connected her enthusiasm for art, fashion and photography with her active advocacy for better acceptance of a variety of body images. Anna wanted to create a safe space for people who are in need of help and can’t afford immediate medical help. Growing up with certain body ideals prescribed by society Anna has struggled with her body image for a long time. Anna moved to London where she started exploring and accepting herself. She wanted to document the journey with the hope that it could help even one person.

Bodiessance platform started with initial thoughts of being a supportive website to help people of any age, gender or race who struggle with their body image and are seeking help online. Therefore, we listed below a number of emergency contact if you need immediate support.
