Health at Every Size
Fat! Fit? Flabulous!
Countless men and women are fighting and unending, toxic war against their own bodies. They strive to meet an arbitrary expectation of size and weight in a culture that portrays thinness as the epitome of health and beauty. I’ve been following the growing movement of women who are proving that health and beauty can transcend weight. Fat. Fit. Flabulous! is a long-term project that examines how women view themselves. The project offers a different perspective on weight – an issue that much of the media marginalizes and ignores. This series of images helps raise awareness of an alternative lifestyle that isn’t well understood: being fat, happy and healthy! You’re invited to meet some of the Bay Area activists at the center of the new civil rights movement known as Health at Every Size. These are women who encourage others to love their bodies in a battle against fat discrimination.
