Tired Of Seeing Prejudice Against Plus-Sized Women This Artist Turned Them Into Art

We’ve had all the possible versions of the ‘ideal’ body throughout history, and it’s about time that we agree – beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and the most attractive is the art of being comfortable and confident in your own skin.

“BALOU” Or What Is Happening To Our Bodies After Coming Home From A Long Party Night? (NSFW)


Moritz Jekat’s work Balou is a project about bodies and about what is happening to them in the meantime between a long party night out and going to bed.

He was questioning himself what is happening to our bodies, once we get back home after a long and intense night out?
The mind is probably still at the club and you could still hear the music, but your body is exhausted and hangs around at your home or some friends, or strangers place.

How do you feel? How does your body feel? Is there anything left from the night, what has happened to your body, any marks on you? And what is happening in the meantime between the night out and going to bed? In which place do you end up and with who? How much energy is left?

Moritz took pictures of himself and his friends after club-nights and private parties. Sometimes he was alone with them, sometimes he went home in a group. All pictures are taken in spontaneous situations. Its all shot analog with his old Minolta.
