Entry Description

Curve is an inclusive series that showcases the beauty of differences that usually make women feel insecure. It was important to me that this work not be limited by size or ethnicity. Personally, I’ve always related to women who are criticized for being overweight, however I’ve come to learn that most people feel unhappy with their size. There are many women who are shamed for being too thin, too large, too pale or too dark. The concept that women are almost always “too much” of something is a perception that I want to explore and dispute. These inkjet images are to be displayed at 8.5 x 11 inches to mimic how they would be viewed if they were printed in magazines or viewed online like recent inclusive campaigns such as Dove and L’Oreal.
