Entry Description

Photographer & Artist: Jady Bates // IG: @jadybates Model & Concept Designer: Beth Nicole Dodge // IG: @beth.nicole.dodge Title: BODY IMAGE: NEGATIVE TO POSITIVE This series puts on display the thoughts and words women often deal with in society today - when coming to terms with themselves and their body. How do we think of our body? How do we compare it to others? How to we end the negative cycle of comparative thoughts and belittlement? Which words empower us as we view ourselves? Reflections upon this subject is an important, sometimes, lifelong endeavor for women today. Transitioning from a negative body image to a positive one is difficult and often scary, but the journey is well worth one's acceptance. May positivity reign.
