Bite Me

160 x 180 cm.


By Christiane Vleugels, Belgium.

A taunting phrase, meaning “I don’t care,” is used to defend our actions, characteristics, or values following an accusation. Because how often do we get comments on our behavior?

How often do we act as is expected of us? How often are we true to ourselves?
Christiane says: “If we could only find the courage to stand up for ourselves… It dawned upon me after reviewing a photoshoot that I recently had with a fantastic model, Kaluuna Moon, that I found myself stunned by her fearless and confident poses. She expressed so much of what I felt I was missing, so I promised to work on being more authentic.
This is why this portrait became so important to me. It’s a salute to all the fearless women who are not afraid to be true to themselves and stand up for their values.
Bite me is for those who dare to say: “Take it or leave it. This is me!”
