Photos of when Hannah Wilke was dying of cancer, I feel she wanted to combat beauty standards and used the images of her dying of cancer to show that.
- Use of poses drawn from traditional nudes used in western art but also poses from magazines such as playboy.
- addresses beauty standards and our desire to have the ideal body.
- In my opinion she is addressing stigmas with body image and showing that it is okay not to be okay.
Her use of the body, with the obvious scaring on show, juxtaposes with the position she is led in.
