Beauty standards are the socially constructed notion that physical attractiveness is one of human's most important assets. After interviewing and researching both men and women, I found that women in particular are held to a very high standard of beauty.
Beauty Is…is a campaign that is designed to bring awareness to individuals about unrealistic beauty standards. The goal is to promote the idea that inner beauty is more important than physical appearance. I captured photographs of every-day women with no alterations or make up. Beauty is: wisdom, happiness, strength, intelligence, confidence, kindness, etc.
