BEAUTY KNOWS NO PAIN

     People are free to do what they want to their own bodies and oftentimes make extreme compromises and changes in order to be accepted or feel good about themselves. My portfolio communicates the physical impact from the lengths women will go to achieve the unrealistic standards of society’s definition of beauty. I also explore the emotional impact of low self-esteem and a deep hunger to be accepted.
