A professional photographer, Ben Hopper, also OBVIOUSLY got fed up of daily sexism, biases, inequality and stereotypical mentality of the society that he used his talent to break them all.
It is hard to fight stereotypical mentality verbally sometimes because it is rooted deep in our society. People do not want to rethink or even question what they have been served in the plate by their ancestors because maybe it would take too much effort? If only they know how hard they make other's life by shamelessly spreading toxic beliefs and imposing it on society. Talking about society, it is nothing new to think about how we portray or expect our women to be. A woman's life is everybody's business—what they wear, how they behave, what they do to their body, what they want to do with their body and the list can go on and on without any full stop.
A professional photographer, Ben Hopper, also OBVIOUSLY got fed up of daily sexism, biases, inequality and stereotypical mentality of the society that he used his talent to break them all. Even though women are humans too, people take pride in being a hypocrite and expecting women to be different. For example, even though armpit hair is a natural state of a human body, women possessing it, make people cringe, and many even feel gross. Isn't this the funniest thing this world, without even using their 'supreme' brain accepted it? A man can take pride in showing off his hairy body and armpit, but people demean women who do the same. Ben's personal project called 'Natural Beauty' is a beautiful way of portraying women embracing their armpit hair like a boss lady. These pictures will contradict and bash all the beauty industries that promote and show woman's body hair as something unwanted, by launching different hair removal creams and appliances. The question is if at all it is unhygienic, then how on earth it ONLY unhygienic for the women but not men?
While posing fiercely for the photographer, each woman also opens up about her story, as to why she chose to stop shaving their hair, and what they made them realize that it was never them, but the toxic education of society they were living on.
