Myles Pedlar‘s photography explores such themes as gender, sexuality, and identity while challenging societal stereotypes on how nudity in art is usually perceived. In Pedlar’s work, his naked subjects can hardly be sexualized by the public as their gender stays unknown. Which gives his audience an opportunity to look at their bodies from a different perspective – to perhaps better appreciate its perfect construction or value the joy that comes when experiencing some aspects of the material world.
Abstraction, contortion, and warping are the main instruments used by the artist that present his models with completely new forms. While the artist is playing with the perception of his audience, he also creates the discourse about their true identity.
