Digital print

Hairy (Kovalam - Kerala) is a photo comprised from the artist's examination of self. Through the act of observation, Coelho creates a narrative exploring his experiences of how the body is perceived. The image explores the gesture of being barefoot which has importance in traditional Hindu culture throughout India. By placing his hairy feet and legs within a fertile landscape, Coelho focuses on the primordial relationship between human body and earth.
