Illusions of the Body by Gracie Hagen
Chicago-based photographer Gracie Hagen has created a photography series titled Illusions of the Body ..."...made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have".
