Photography: Kimber Beck’s Self-Portraits

Her work might be better described as body portraits that explore intimacy with the body of the self, and with the bodies of other women.

Lady Liberty, The Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge. These are just a few examples of what one might visualize when asked about New York City. With five boroughs, eight million inhabitants, glitz, glamour, guns and gangs, it holds true that the city undoubtedly never sleeps.
