The definition of beauty is constantly changing, with the help of the media and its body standards. With fat shaming, white washing and ableism incorporated within the beauty ideal, it is becoming more unrealistic and impossible to achieve this ‘true beauty’. The way women view themselves is harsher, leading on to self-esteem issues, and even eating disorders. It is time to realise that each woman is unique and is beautiful.

Why should we strive for something impossible and unrealistic?

This series titled ‘Women’, displays multiple women who are all unique and have different elements of beauty. The piece asks the question, how can the ideal of beauty exist when everyone is so different and when everyone perceives beauty differently and in a unique light?
