Why do people want to change something about their bodies? Is this how they try to live up to an ideal image? Or is it because their body bothers them? What is the ideal image then? After all, this also varies from culture to culture. Is it ethical to spend money on superfluous surgery, while there are people who do not have the money to meet essential needs?
In this series of photos I asked several people around me what they would change about themselves.
I used orange construction plastic to emphasise the part of the body to be "rebuilt" and to link it to orange fenced construction sites in the landscape, symbolising man's urge to build.
