Delicate Porcelain: Selina Switch

I never shoot for perfection or symmetry in doll making. It is our lovely flaws that make us each special.
-Gayle Wray
It is within the flaws that we find simple perfection. Imagine if we had scars on our porcelain dolls, how different would we view their innocence and immortal youth. This got me thinking about the symbolism of pale white skin and it’s an association with femininity and fragility. A lot can be said for perfection, but it is all one of the same. Perfection can be duplicated, flaws and character cannot.
This photo set with Selina is inspired by the photographer, Iness Rychlik. Her images convey a powerful message of the pain of beauty and I hoped to capture at least a drop of that essence in these images. I hope you enjoy the images and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

Xavier Rose for The Medusas | Jessica K Photography

Xavier Rose for The Medusas

Full NSFW editorial available by pledging $10 per month to my Patreon

Xaviers editorial for The Medusas was shot in her own room on a warm day at the Gold Coast. We used reflections in windows, surprise kittens and an Alice In Wonderland-esque frame to create these images. 

Xavier’s story revolves around gendered criticisms, specifically to do with female bodies, masculine and unorthodox occupations and assumed level of fitness for becoming a good parent. Xavier has a background in body building and body art, which has left a door open to a world of unwanted criticism, from her family, friends and strangers. What I am saying isn’t groundbreaking but it is true that there is still a prejudice today against people with tattoos, even though it has ‘gotten better.’ It is easy to see this prejudice being placed on women when people like to take it upon themselves to judge if a mother is fit to care for a child, solely on physical appearance.

On top of being a tattooed young woman, and having to deal with the “what will you children/grandparents think” or “they will look ugly when you’re older.” Xavier is also part of the body building community. As you can imagine, this had led to comments questioning her femininity as it is typically seen as a man’s sport. Xavier finds herself wading through criticisms such as “You’re going to lose your breasts” “No man will ever find you attractive.” 

Although these elements of Xavier’s life have been heavily criticised by those around her, it has never once stopped her from pursuing what she loves and does well at. Gendered expectations are harmful to all of us, men, women and our children. This is where representation of different genders, races and sexualities comes into play as being highly important in working towards more accepting society for marginalised people.
