An 18-year-old student is behind a striking photography series depicting some of President-Elect Donald Trump’s most derogatory comments, painted on the bodies of real women.
Aria Watson, who studies at Clatsop Community College in Oregon, USA, created #SignedByTrump as a project for her Intro to Photography class and shared the photos on social media in the hope that more people “would realise what kind of man he is,” she explains in a video on YouTube.
While we’re used to sound bites of Trump’s most outrageous statements – “grab ‘em by the pussy” stands out in particular – seeing them branded on women’s bodies highlights just how offensive and damaging they are.
Instagram and Facebook have both taken the images down in line with their nudity policies, but they remain on Twitter and Tumblr.
Watson hopes the images inspire people to make their voices heard.
