No, these are not photographs!
Lee Price is an American artist who paints incredibly realistic self-portraits of his most intimate moments.
The paintings, with an almost photographic realism, portray the artist indulging in secret feasting in different scenarios.
On the sofa surrounded by sweets, on the bed - naked - covered only by fast food wrappers, in the bathroom while using the toilet as a table.
The aim of the works created over the last 7 years is to explore the complex relationship of women with food, bringing the experience of those who, like the artist, have suffered from eating disorders in the past.
Even today, eating excessively is my way of reacting to life's problems, admits the artist who is now 47 years old. The series of paintings explores compulsive behavior focused through food.
