Her Place is in Skin | Photograph by Briana Gardener (@brianagardener
“This photograph features women of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. Wearing absolutely no makeup and in outfits styled to match the tone of their skin, the women will combat unhealthy beauty standards by celebrating their so-called ‘flaws,’ proving that beauty is no one color, size, or shape, and that true empowerment is much deeper than the skin,” writes #YourShotPhotographer
Briana Gardener. “Posing together, these women will celebrate the strength that lies in community and the power that lies in unity.” This shoot was part of the Her Place Is In (@herplaceisin
) community; styled by Michelle Singleton (@mishellly
). This photo was selected for the January 11, 2019 edition of our Photos of the Week series.
“This is one awesome portrait, Briana! It's an intersectional celebration of women of all shapes and tones. Their tender pose reinforces the reminder that women and female-identifying folks should be supporting each other across the board. Well done!” — @natgeoyourshot
