Title of the Piece (Series):
Angela Godoy is an Orange County and Los Angeles based multidisciplinary artist. Her educational background in architecture, graphic design and photography allow for experimentation and inventions of the physical photograph. Godoy is passionate about self-expression and the unaltered beauty every physical being possesses. Her exploration of gender roles, athletes and self-expression drives her unconditional passion to redefine the societal standards that have been infringed upon women, men, and our LGBTQ community.
The concept of this photo series is derived from our relationship to the human body, and how it is molded by personal association and societal stigmas. The human form is a powerful and beautiful canvas of self-expression yet it can become the pivotal corner of our self-destruction. Utilizing traditional film with a fixed 35mm lens each photograph expresses the strength of the human spirit through questionable muscular components of the forms. Both male and female forms merge as one blurring the line of gender roles.
