The Beauty Is…

By March 31, 2016 September 20th, 2017 BLOG, CREATIVE PROJECTS, GIVING BACK
As an artist, I enjoy working on personal projects that feed my soul. I am passionate about creating work that enhances the self-esteem of girls and young women. For this project, I wanted to capture portraits that stimulate discussions about concepts of beauty and stereotypes within our society.I have always been interested in what kids think, what young girls think, and how they develop their concepts of things within their world and the world around them. I was very curious to see how in this age of social media, “selfies”, and everyone constantly taking pictures, what girls thought about ‘beauty’, and what they thought made a beautiful person. So I decided to ask them.
I have always been interested in what kids think, what young girls think, and how they develop their concepts of things within their world and the world around them. I was very curious to see how in this age of social media, “selfies”, and everyone constantly taking pictures, what girls thought about ‘beauty’, and what they thought made a beautiful person. So I decided to ask them. I chose to photograph girls starting at age 5 all the way up to late teens. I wanted to see how the younger girls in the lower ages differentiated from the older girls as their exposure to society affected their views on beauty and what defined a beautiful person.
I chose to photograph girls starting at age 5 all the way up to late teens. I wanted to see how the younger girls in the lower ages differentiated from the older girls as their exposure to society affected their views on beauty and what defined a beautiful person. So while I photographed them, I talked to them and asked them questions about what their definition of beauty was, and what makes someone beautiful v.s. a beautiful person. While I wanted to hear what the girls thought about beauty, more importantly, I wanted to start a dialogue between the girls, their parents, and society as a whole, to try to combat this stereotyped media image of visual perfection. The girls had such great answers and clear concepts of what true beauty is.
Encouraging this kind of dialogue really helps build their self-esteem to help them stick to these values. I want them to affirm it for themselves. I wanted to try to encourage the girls to talk about what they thought and affirm that true beauty comes from the inside. The beauty is, is a social conscious photo essay project, with the goal of starting a social dialogue to combat the modern stereotype definition of what makes someone beautiful. Allowing for young girls everywhere to be encouraged to speak their mind and seek role models based on character and not the color of their lipstick.
