The Body Image Project: A Movement To Celebrate The Real You

The Body Image Project cuts to the chase and asks the simple question, “How do you feel about your body?” Highlighting human’s relationships to their body, this project wants to know the real you. Inspired partly by a Newsweek story highlighting a trend where parents had their children’s elementary school pictures retouched, this collaborative effort between Dr. Tiffany Stewart, Crush + Lovely and New Orlean’s based DelTree creative studios hopes to “imagine a world where we arent so preoccupied with how our bodies look, but focused instead on how they function”. There are recurring themes such as mental and physical balance, clinical psychology, eating disorders, and obesity. The Body Image Project encourages people to accept themselves for who they are while pointing out how the beauty ideal represented on magazine covers is completely rendered false by Adobe Photoshop.
