The rules of body image and beauty ideals need to be rewritten because many women do not know how to love themselves. Without proper guidance and information, there can be many difficult consequences to having a negative body image. Average Girl: A Guide to Loving Your Body is a self-help guide filled with resources that will help the reader work towards loving their body. The visual aspect, photographs of real women, illuminates the idea that it is crucial for women to see more sources of positive body image.
The goal is to photograph as many young women as possible wearing nothing but their skivvies. Seeing untouched, real images of women will show readers that they are not alone...that we all are uniquely Average. The images will inspire readers to embrace their bodies and the content will empower them.
