C’est une petite révolution qui commence, tous les corps sont beaux et les photos retouchées y compris pour les mannequins « plus » ne font que continuer à répandre la tyrannie d’un seul corps parfait et lisse !
Mais dans la réalité tous les corps sont beaux, et peu restent lisses, car la vie n’est jamais lisse, mais n’est pas moins belle.
These stripes rarely make it into my photos so here’s a self portrait. I guess lighting and filters and garments and sometimes retouching all take the attention off of them which is exactly what some people are more comfortable looking at and therefore exactly what most of the industry prefers. But I wonder how many of us, especially women, really prefer looking at only the most idealized versions of our bodies. Maybe we should consider how damaging it is to people who don’t know about the tricks behind the scenes. And maybe we should ask ourselves how we really feel about the moral implications of letting people, women, young women, believe their « imperfections » aren’t normal because they’re not being represented in the media. I got most of my stretchmarks when I was a teen and I remember feeling sick every time I saw them because I didn’t think anyone else had them, and they were a sign that my body was failing me or that I was failing my body. I see them now as a sign that my body has a way of dealing and healing. And the few more I got when I was pregnant with Finlay are marks of the greatest pride I’ve ever known. This is my body and I love it, stripes and all. #loveyourbody #imperfect #perfect #taralynn #stretchmarks #stripes #everybodyisbeautiful
Qui sera la prochaine à assumer son corps et à partager une photo de sa réalité ?
