Welcome to Issue 0 - the founder’s issue.
Bodiessance is a safe space celebrating the body.

Welcome to Issue 0 - the founder’s issue. You are invited to explore an outlet in a form of a triptych setting up the tone where the platform can flow in the future. Bodiessance is a safe space celebrating the body. Issue 0 portrays Anna’s perception and her relationship with her body through her feminine perspective that she has explored over the past few months and led her to publish it as part of the bodiessance platform. Opening the issue with a self-portrait photo series Anna had the chance to turn to herself and uncover layers through the metaphor of an oyster helping her to go through the metamorphosis of opening herself up. The second photo series celebrates women’s bodies re-imagining the symbol of Venus through the feminine perspective challenging the relationship between empowerment and ownership of a body. Lastly, Anna has come up with the concept of Body Library with the aspiration of future continuity. Anna wanted to change the approach toward the incitement of insecurities knowing everyone struggles with some part of their body. She wants to show that everyone is unique and help people to realise it through scrolling in each library. The first-ever library is dedicated to belly and is open for you to submit your belly image.

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 contacts if you need immediate support.
