Fat Belly Boy Booklet

The ‘Fat Belly Boy Booklet’ is a first in a series of zine explorations of Chet Bugter’s project selfies as self love praxis.

“(…) the act of taking and uploading the selfie becomes a moment to focus on my own perception of my body, and how this body relates to its surroundings. Uploading a picture of one’s body can become quite radical when said body is “different” in comparison to normative, and subsequently fashionable bodies. Every time I post my body — often unclothed, with its stretchmarks, skinfolds, hair, sweat, large belly and chest, discolorations — onto a digital platform, it breaks the endless stream of perfectly stylized bodies that inhabit Instagram.”
