August 2019: BODIES

In its sixth issue, Unootha urges creatives to use their mediums of self-expression to discuss the symbol of bodies, to be raw and honest. The following bodies of work do just that, exploring different notions, from sexuality and intimacy as well as our region’s beauty standards and the damage they may have.
