Are you a big bottomed girl and do you love it? Then I need you!
Is your face covered in freckles or embraced by uncontrollable hair, and do you adore it? Then I need you!
Are you too skinny or too big according to current beauty standards, and do you not give a fuck about it? Then I surely need you!
Because people who wear themselves with pride, are beautiful people! And that’s exactly what I want to express, together with fashion photographer Tomas Vandecasteele, in a artistic set of portraits.
We’re stepping away from fast, superficial beauty which we often encounter in our jobs, and we’re bringing it all back to what’s essential in life.
Or as Eric Berne once said:
“The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing.”
More practically, we’re intending to create these series of 20 portraits from young, vibrant, pretty people (age between 16 and 30) who might have a ‘flaw’ or two, but don’t give a fuck. It’s a about the power and ‘joie de vivre’ they exude. These series will be shown in a large exhibition, and afterwards exposed in a magazine.
How to become one of our ‘models’?
Write me your personal story about self-acceptance.
Add two recent pictures of yourself (no nudity involved, thank you :-))
Send this to firstname.lastname@example.org
If we feel you fit the concept perfectly, you’ll be hearing from us really soon!
With lots of love,
