Interesting Photogaphy

Here are some interesting photo series I have come across and (I think) need to be seen by everyone everywhere ever.

Picture an Arab Man by Tamara Abdul Hadi
Portraits of semi-nude Arab men, aiming to break the stereotypes placed on arab males, and celebrating their sensual beauty.

Real Beauty by Jodi Bieber
Unedited photos of everyday South African women in their homes, in their underwear. The purpose is to counter the narrow beauty ideals sold to us on a daily basis.

Insight into the LGBT world of Beirut, one of the few Arab cities in which homosexuality is openly discussed.

4th Trimester Bodies Project by Ashlee Wells Jackson
Photo documentary project which celebrates the changes brought to the body by motherhood, childbirth, and breastfeeding.

The reason I like these is that they are all inclusive of their subjects. There is no fat-shaming, there is no thin-shaming, there is no shaming of any kind. These sets celebrate their subjects in all shapes, sizes and colors.
