visual me #5

Photographer Substantia Jones has currently taken 341 pictures of fat women: educators, executives, mothers, musicians, professionals, performers, artists, activists, clerks, and writers.. The Adispositivity Project`s aiming for a wider acceptance of fat physicality through visual media and at least striving for a change in narrow definitions of physical beauty.
There is a notable underrepresentation of fat people in media, even the diversity of ethnicities and various social classes are left out in the representation of social ideals. On billboards in public space, in cinema and related media we do not find ourselves, but almost narrow ideas on how we shoul be. It´s not the worst, to irritate with the opposite of what can normally be seen – it`s a step forward – from conventional images of the human body to a more individual development of perception.
