“Form is balance, balance is flow. 

A cyclic celebration of evolution, a spontaneous ritual of repeated transformation.

I’m learning to embrace the imbalances to find balance in my form.

I had amenorrhea (absence of menstruation) for three years and a half.

Four weeks ago I had my first period since I was 21.

This shooting has been cathartic.

Photographer: Margherita Loba Amadio // Model: Iman

Margherita Loba Amadio is a 24 year old photographer from Milan. She just finished university, where she studied Communication and Sociology, and she is now very much interested in anthropology and art, and the relation between the two.

"The model is in front of her camera but she's there for nobody to watch her, she doesn't owe anything to anyone, she is not pleasing anyone. The model is more to be intimidating instead of alluring, she has never to be a pray."
