The influence of the way we live our daily lives leaves evidence on our bodies. Sometimes we struggle and our bodies hold themselves together while other times there is a natural beauty that engulfs our bodies if only for a short period. Sometimes the skin begins to wrinkle and stretch. Other times, our muscles become so defined that one can tell exactly which activity you take part in everyday. We begin to see the redness that comes from working with our hands, over using muscles, and using our feet to their greatest extent. It is an observation on how we are all affected by every day ways of life and activities. Often our skin begins to change as we change the ways we live. Pregnancy is temporary, but the long-term affects are left as evidence. When a man can lift twice his weight over his head, his body will tell his story. But, with lack of physical commitment, muscles begin to atrophy. This series is not meant to tell the stories of the individuals, but to show how the human body continues to change and adapt, often needing to repair itself.

We are all of the same species, yet we look so different. Each image is titled with a scientific, anatomical, or otherwise accurate name further describing the image to better understand the importance of being aware of what is going on with our bodies.
