Male and female bodies, in their purest and most authentic form, are the subjects at the center of Sara Hini‘s artistic research.
Sara Hini is a young and talented photographer born in Algeria and escaped from her country because of the civil war when she was still a child. After spending a brief period in France, she moved to Canada, specifically to Montreal, where she still lives and works today.
Her personal history led her from a young age to experience first hand what it means to feel different and uncomfortable with your appearance. It is from this feeling that her shots are born, a sort of revenge, a symbol of how diversity is uniqueness.
It is for this reason that the main subjects of her photographs are bodies, bodies of those who decide to strip bare and show themselves in all their uniqueness, with stretch marks, scars and extra pounds. Nudity and sexuality are key themes in Sara Hina’s research and are also at the center of the project that the young photographer began five years ago with her friend and photographer Cassandra Cacheiro. The Womanhood Project, this is the title, returns what are defined as intimate portraits that show what it means to be and feel like a woman.
We have selected only a few of Sara Hini’s shots, but follow her on Instagram to discover all her other works.
