According to Nyong’o, Japanwala’s work is “rooted in the rejection and deconstruction of external shame attached to one’s body. In her artistic process, she creates a realistic and true record of a person’s body as an act of resistance and celebration, and an insistence on being allowed to exist freely in our bodies.”

Through Nyong’o's caption, Japanwala elaborates on the passion behind her practice: ”My craft pertains to documenting our existence in the most truthful way I possibly can — I change nothing about the body and how it looks .I think that act of surrendering and allowing our bodies to simply be, is such a beautiful and powerful thing.”
