Body Be Beautiful

2 Dec


The picture on the mirror says”Redefining Beauty”. This photo was a part of a series of photos taken for an arts project I had as an assignment. I am not a photographer but I enjoyed staging the photo and conjuring up concepts. The pile of traditional womans “beauty aids” is to signify me stepping out of them and embracing myself just the way I am. Enjoying my curves, being in awe of the stretchmarks I have from childbirth, and allowing myself to just be and not be conscious of what that looks like in comparison to some one elses conception of beauty.

With love,

Helen K
