why do you shave?

If you are never shown something, you will believe it doesn’t exist or is wrong. One of the many stigmas attached to women's natural bodies is that body hair is ‘disgusting’ and ‘unhygienic’. I have explored female body hair in a humorous and playful manner to provoke positive conversations about the stigmas and negative reactions attached to women embracing their natural bodies.

‘Why do you shave?’ is a mini editorial inspired by and featuring works from my ‘Body Hair’ project. Using bold, bright and playful imagery the photos challenge stigmas towards body hair and start positive conversations about a women’s choice to keep or remove it.
