Photographer Challenges “American Beauty” Standards With Differently Shaped Women



San Francisco-based photographer Carey Fruth has set to change beauty standards all across the country. And what better way to do this than by replicating a scene from “American Beauty”. Fruth was inspired by a racy scene from the 1999 movie of the same name in which Kevin Spacey fantasized about one of his daughter’s friends.

“By stepping into a fantasy dream girl world and by letting go of that fear, they free themselves up to direct that energy they once wasted on telling themselves that they weren’t good enough to elsewhere in their life,” Fruth told Huffpost.
