From David Rosenberg’s article about Jen Davis’ series “Eleven Years” for Slate:

Like a million other college students on spring break, Jen Davis took a picture of herself and her friends while they were hanging out on a beach.

When she returned to school and developed the film, the results caught her off guard.

The image of Davis, titled “Pressure Point,” shows her larger, covered body seated on a towel while her thinner friends around her wear bikinis.

“I wanted to make a picture to see what that felt like,” Davis said about the moment on the beach. “I was shocked by the ability I had to kind of freeze that moment, to take a mundane but painful moment that was able to be described in the image.”
