CATHERHEA POTJANAPORN

Catherhea is a photographer based in Kuala Lumpur who strives to push boundaries by photographing people whose own unique beauty and stories are usually disregarded by mass media. Often highlighted in her works are the beauty of dark skin, textured skin, fat bodies, people with disabilities, and the queer community.  Her photographs often take on dreamy, naturalistic concepts and her subjects are aesthetically portrayed with a realistically optimistic outlook.

WHO DO I BELONG TO?
This Fat Ass Is Mine, So Why Does It Bother You?

This project portrays fat people in a light in which their bodily autonomy is respected, giving them room to proclaim ownership of their bodies through a personal, diversified lens of desirability. These photographs were created to glorify the marginalised and offend the bigots. The mood? Fat joy. Despite society's efforts to convince them otherwise, this is a big fat celebration of fat people who are happy in their fat bodies.
