A new photo shoot entitled WE.WOMEN, made by Lithuanian photographer Neringa Rekašiūtė, journalist Beata Tiškevič and communication specialist Modesta Kairytė, aims to shatter the irrational body standards promoted by mass media. Instead they hope, women all over the world will become more comfortable with their bodies.
To do so, the team gathered 12 women of different shapes and sizes and asked them to take off their clothes and pose in front of a mirror. These however are not ordinary women, each one of them having a hard story related to their self image.
“Our models have experienced a variety of poor body image problems: anorexia, bulimia, breast cancer, vitiligo, depression, fat-shaming, skinny-shaming… It is as diverse as we could get for this one project,” says Neringa.
