Raul "Rez" Barquet

A few days ago, I received this email from Rez Barquet, a New York artist:


I stumbled across your website while doing research for an art project I am doing.

I have a solo art show coming up in July and am creating a body of work based around the lives of people with eating disorders. I need people who are willing to let me use their image, as well as people who can contribute in the form of quotes. I am looking for their feelings and thoughts about the conditions and everyday state of their lives. If you could help me out by maybe posting a blog about my project along with my email, I would be very grateful. I hope to spread some awareness about anorexia and bulimia through art. Thank you.

Great project, Rez. The more info out there about eating disorders, the better.

If you are suffering from an eating disorder, or have recovered, please take a moment to share your experiences (and/or photos) with Rez. His e-mail address is reznotorious@aim.com

Best of luck to you, Rez, with your project.
