    Ariana Page Russell uses her body’s hypersensitive skin in her photo series appropriately titled ‘Skin‘.  Ariana possesses a condition known as dermatographia, where her immune system releases excessive amounts of histamine causing her skin to welt up for around thirty minutes from the lightest of scratches.  This conditions allows Ariana to use her body in a way many of us cannot, therefore creating some of the most unique images. 

    Ariana also photographs her flushing skin, using the images to create wallpaper installations and temporary tattoos.  In her photo series ‘Save Face‘ she applies the tattoos on various areas of the body to explore the concept of augmenting one’s identity.
