So last month at the end of my semester, I was in a department meeting joking with some fellow teachers about how undergrads love to take naked pictures of each other, especially when trying to give voice to body issues. It’s nothing to laugh at, but it just struck me as weird that this seems so universal with college kids, especially because they have no idea what riot girls are. And then, wham-o, Bushwick Daily, which I respect, recommended Lauren Renner’s show of naked young people who were “photographed after undergoing a body-writing process in which they are physically marked by each other with the words they have experienced being defined as during the course of their lives.” Yeah, I am not sure I understand why it’s such a widespread thing. Is there some therapeutic youth camp where that this kind of thing is taught? Best as I can figure, is it’s a simple solution to the challenging visual problem of how to articulate your feelings about your body? Answer: write those feelings in text onto naked bodies and bam, you have an instantly understandable visual language. Renner’s multi-paneled pictures are technically a big step above undergrads, but this kind of thing is literally an undergrad photo cliché. Oh and FINE & RAW makes some excellent if not expensive chocolate.
