The title for the photoshoot “Flying Fish” comes from model Mino’s name meaning “little fish”, yet she possesses the capability to break boundaries and go for the unexpected, knowing no limitation. Her solo art exhibition “Story of Our Eyes” creates an immersive experience for her audience in order to empower positive body imaging. The exploration of identity through the eyes of sexuality and race is explored through a sculptural and performance based practice that interrogates the relationship between representation and identity.
Belladetta’s topless photoshoot delivers a message about being comfortable in your own skin despite your gender, sexuality, ethnicity, etc. It’s only when you accept yourself that you can become mobile and change, and any insecurities are free to vanish.
