A week ago, I had my first public reading. The event was organised by Litup, and the evening’s theme centred around painful or funny work experiences. My essay, entitled Paid to Look Pretty, was about a photoshoot I did while working as a nude model in Amsterdam. While I may not have explicitly discussed the construction of feminine beauty in the essay, I did touch upon many issues related to beauty, bodies, sexuality, femininity and art.
The reading is on YouTube – feel free to check it out!
Thanks again to those of you who came to the reading – it meant the world to me!
