Undressed Skeleton: Zucchini Pizzas, Anyone? (Only 40-50 Calories)

If you were to ask a class of elementary school students what their favorite food was, most of their answers would be “pizza”. If you were to ask a college campus what their favorite food was, most of their answers would be “pizza”. If you were to ask me what my favorite food was, I would…

image My impairment is known as Phocomelia, which means ‘seal-like limbs’. In my case, this was induced by the fact that my mother was prescribed Thalidomide when she was pregnant with me. I do have a small amount of humerus bone, and where the radius and ulna bones might be, I have a small plate bone, looking a little like the flipper bone of a seal; and I have no thumbs. My condition is constant, as opposed to degenerative, but I have over-compensated in other limbs, which are damaged by arthritis as a result.

I have collaborated with Ashley, the photographer, many times as I believe that it’s really important for disabled people to allow themselves to be identified as sexual beings, subjects, objects, people engaging with their sexuality and sexy feelings. I love to be stripped of all my clothing and to explore my glorious, naked disabled body and self, proud of who and what I am, and represent. I am proud and happy to be different and I do love being looked at, lusted after. When an image of my body disturbs the viewer, I like that too, as it means that in some way they are forced to reassess their perspective on sex, nakedness, beauty and disability.image

image My condition is known as Diastrophic Dysplasia, a type of dwarfism that is particularly common in Finland, the country of my birth. During my childhood and adolescence, I used to be extremely embarrassed about my body, but through many painful experiences I came to realize that there is just no such thing as a ‘perfect’ body. Nowadays I do not think of myself as being different, any more so than everyone is different from someone else. Through my artistic practice as a performer and model, I strive to show that feeling sexy and confident does not necessarily require fitting into predetermined stereotypes of normative beauty.

I have modelled for Ashley many times in the past and trust him implicitly, so have no objections to being photographed naked. Even in everyday life, I cannot hide away my imperfections behind clothes and make-up, so in a sense, I am always naked whether I wear clothes or not.image

I am admittedly not good at yoga. I’m not even sort of good. & how can I expect to be? I’ve been doing it for a week. You know what, for that matter, I’m not “good” at lifting, either. Or running. Or swimming. But I’ll still keep doing them, & I’ll keep getting better.
Not being good at something is such a bogus excuse to stop doing it.
You’re not good? Practice. Be better. Be perfect.
