Artist’s Statement

My Father’s Daughter is the most recent project of photographer Britt Bradley. Through self-reflection, of a life long struggle with body image issues, Bradley explores the roles identity, depression, sexuality and trauma play in physical self-acceptance. Making use of self-portraiture and post-production image manipulation Bradley works to connect with and recognize a body she has never felt secure or safe in. The project speaks both to the personal experience of the artist and to the struggle many queer people experience in reconciling physical identity and personal trauma. My Father’s Daughter is an exploration of the thin veil between perception and distortion.
