"real beauty"

I felt a strong need to create a body of work that goes against what the media has depicted as beautiful. Even within a complexed society such as South Africa, across all communities, women hold unneccesary perceptions of self doubt around themselves and their beauty from an early age.. The work deals with reality but also touches on fantasy. The common ground for my work is both myself and the women I photograph wanted to make a stand for Real Beauty.

"I think if you believe you are beautiful, you will appear beautiful to the world." - Brenda
