Proud In My Skin - 24" x 24"


“I have always been a bit heavier, but I have almost always felt good in my own skin.  When I was in my early 20s, I made the choice to have a breast reduction. This changed my relationship with my body, for the better. I am proud of those scars and felt it was important to showcase them! As I get older, I feel like I have a responsibility to my body to take care of it and give back to it. It has given me my two boys, allowed me to travel and has led me on many adventures. As I sat, naked, in front of two strangers and a camera, it just felt like another adventure that I found myself and my body on.”

THE BODY PROJECT is a collaborative project between artist Mary-Jo Lough, and photographer Kelly Szott.  It is a celebration of both body positivity & neutrality.  The  volunteer models were given the opportunity to journal about their posing experience.  Most pieces in the collection have portions of their writing in the piece.  Additionally, the reflections were used to title each piece.
