The Photogrpahy of Yossi LoloiJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 24 May 2011
At first we thought these were oil paintings, but they are just very well-shot and constructed portraits from Yossi Loloi, with the subject matter being "larger women" (the artists words) in the nude. The work is part of a series titled Full Beauty.
“In my work I portray what larger women represent to me. I focus on their fullness and femininity, as a form of protest against discrimination set by media and by today’s society. What larger women embody to me is simply a different form of beauty. I believe we own ‘freedom of taste’ and one shouldn’t be reluctant of expressing his inclination towards it. Limiting this freedom is living in a dictatorship of esthetics “
