Photographer Redefines “American Beauty” Standards With 14 Women Of All Types

Published 11 months ago

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Photographer Carey Fruth thinks that all the women in her “American Beauty” image series are just that – beautiful. Her series is inspired by a scene from 1999’s movie “American Beauty,” where Kevin Spacey’s character imagines his daughter’s friend – young, white, thin – laying naked surrounded by rose petals. Fruth wants to retake that quintessential male fantasy and use it to empower women of all colors, ages and sizes to be happy about their bodies.

“By stepping into a fantasy dream girl world and by letting go of that fear, they free themselves up to direct that energy they once wasted on telling themselves that they weren’t good enough to elsewhere in their life,” Carey Fruth, who works as a photographer in San Francisco, told Huffington post, commenting on “American Beauty” for Huffington Post.
