An artist who overcame anorexia has posted naked for a series of provocative photographs to fight against the objectification of women. Kazakhstan-born artist Aida Emelyanova was told she was “too fat” by a Russian modelling agency as a teenager – sparking a five-year struggle with an eating disorder. In the 30-year-old’s series of 13 images, called ‘I Do Whatever You Animals Do’ she compares herself to a caged animal and a piece of meat. SEE
