Muse takes the premise from writer J.G. Ballard’s book The Kindness of Women where he states that beauty is the square inch of skin seen on waking up close to the one you love.

Choosing only to photograph friends, family members and partners, this personal project, photographed over ten years, seeks to look at beauty and female emotion in an unvarnished and un-retouched way, thus challenging the 21st Century ethos of cosmetic enhancement and air-brushed magazine perfection.
