From Grace Kuipers’ article for PolicyMic:

The subject of Jen Davis’ most recent self portraits is a very different human being from the person in the 2003 photograph Pressure Point, or 2011’s Untilted No. 43. Over eight years, Davis created hundreds of images of her overweight body, and the struggles that came with it. Then, in late 2011, Davis underwent gastric bypass surgery, leaving us to speculate about what would become of her work. Recently, 110 pounds slimmer, Davis stretched out before the camera in Untilted No. 55, with her lips parted and eyes closed. Thinking back on the powerful nature of her previous images, and how wrapped up they were in the idea of size, I had to wonder: had Davis lost her muse?
