Daria explores human vulnerability through naked bodies. Her artistic style is defined by her polyamorous and feminist identity. Daria challenges the status quo when the image of a naked woman's body is exploited to portray human vulnerability. Capturing manly nudity in everyday routine, she peeks behind the gender stigmas, shifting the perception of sensuality from femininity to masculinity.
Exposing delicate inner worlds full of emotions, worries and insecurity, she nudges us towards understanding that in the end, human vulnerability doesn't have a gender.
