‘Diana Blok opposes the almost inescapable self –image imposed on us by the mass-media – a beautiful, tight, corrected and retouched self-image – and against this she deploys humanity in its true manifestation. Conditioned as we are by the mass-media’s bombardment with artificial idealized images, these photographs are shocking at first because they show the sort of bodies and corporality that are taboo in the visual media. Blok’s work deals with all the themes that make up life: youth, old age, physical decay, eroticism, love, death, sensuality and puberty.’
