What is the body?
Is it weird that I'll post a picture of my pussy but not my face?
I used to not post my face for concerns of anonymity. But I find those concerns concern me less every day, frankly. I'm proud of these pieces I'm making and if someone were to link them to me in real life, I'd hope I could be proud then too.
However, I've discovered that pictures including my face, my eyes, especially, pull focus from the words or thoughts in this close-up text-centric thing I'm doing. And not just my face, I feel that photos with faces are ultimately mostly about the face because it's the most expressive part of the body.
I think the graphic quality of a body without a face attached lends itself to contemplation of form and shape and words. Artistic meditation maybe, sensual meditation probably, but either way more general and less specific, less personal but also more expansive. It allows the audience to get involved and project a bit. To wonder and think and not just to know.
It becomes about more than just me and my body. Or at least that's my intent.

In answer to your question, no, I don't think it's weird. And also, I agree that images of faces tend to be about the face and what we read in them. This is a stunning image.

It's a beautiful picture. Like you I don't show my face, but I show all other parts of my body. I haven't thought about not showing my face the way you do, that it can distract from the image. Interesting thought...

I see the negative space created by the light source to the right as half a heart shape, the other half imagined, warming itself upon the outline. A bright shadow of love cast.
