This Photographer Exposes The Myths About Female Body
A Seattle-based artist Ashley Armitage spent her childhood time as a little girl drawing unicorns and monster trucks. But as she grows old, she later discovered her love for photography.
But what made her stand among the crowd is her uniqueness about her thoughts. She was tired of perfect female bodies that media was showing around. So she decided to deconstruct the Perfect image. She pictured her close female friends to show the media what a non-airbrushed girls really looks like.
She showcases her project as ‘Imperfect‘ bodies.
We also have stretch marks, so what?
“I create images of the female body because historically these images have been controlled by men. We were always the painted and not the painters. I’m trying to take back what’s ours and explore what it means to have a body that has always been defined by a male hand,” Armitage says.
We wax often.
She had her account on Instagram with the this name Ladyist. She has around 25k followers on Instagram.
We have marks too.
And, she loves to flaunt her girls in stripes. Stripes give a woman more feminine look.
What about armpit hairs, isn’t they look sassy?
If you see her first it looks like a normal photos, but when you look at it closely, you will see a natural bikini line, wedges, wounds, hairy skin, period marks and so on.
And these bikini line hair.
This post got massive hate and Instagram has to take this photo down but as it is not against the policies of Insta, she again posted this picture with full brief.
Imperfection is perfect.
Basically, her posts showing all the reality that media hide from us.
Marks make me feel beautiful.
Her followers have always supported her, and their reaction for her work is usually positive.
Marks keep on reminding about my journey.
She said women have public hair and we don’t keep it trimmed or shaved all the time. It’s media that keeps telling that hair on women body is gross.
And, this imperfection
Red panty war, that though time.
What if I don’t shave regular?
One Instagram post.

Some dislikes and some likes.
Beautiful, isn’t it?
