Against my skin by Sarah Samy

Sara tells us about her ongoing great series called "Against my skin";
"I am interested in creating digital representations of skin marks, scars and other traces left due to physical interactions. My intention is not create realistic images of skin, but rather images that would reflect the nature and force of such interaction; sometimes it would be intense and harsh and other times, it would be soft and slow, almost absent, like that caused by merely the passage of time."
