Modern Camouflage!

Cecilia Paredes was born in Lima, Peru.
The photography of Paredes constitutes and attempts to demonstrate that the body of the women – her own body – is a sacred zone, not profane, to restore its perception as something miraculous amidst the technological chaos that currently surrounds us.

Cecilia is interested in using art to explore the boundaries of nature. As a photographer, she often uses her own body as a medium for presenting a dialog between the spirit and the natural world. Working with her assistants, she creates photo performance based works that have her seamlessly blended into backgrounds. Acting as both the photographer and the subject, she uses make-up, body paint and any costume she needs to make her virtually disappear.

Camouflage is a game we all like to play, but our secrets are as surely revealed by what we want to seem to be as by what we want to conceal.

Beauty meets art
The person I know best
I see art when I look at the mirror


  1. This is magnificient – I’m in love with the message, spirit, creativity, use of colour, placement, setting, lighting (and I could go on and on)

    I.m.o. this might be your best post yet (and that’s saying a lot!)

  2. I love these. Thanks for sharing. My pattern-based brain loves the concept, and the rest of me loves the emotion in these photographs.

  3. Very cool, just incredible! Wow! Did you notice in the last one she somehow colored the whites of her eyes blue too? Hopefully she did that with photoshop… I hope she did…
