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

So apparently if you want to be an amazing artistic photographer or writer in modern America all you have to do is display some unhealthy hambeast and praise them for their degenerate, lifestyle with no self control or coddle and stroke the ego of the modern day woman and her feelings while at the same time pushing women as strong independent warrior heroines
Ana, you really used that Aristotle quote in the wrong context.
It’s not only that, you also need to throw old women to the mix, because old “cougars” are just as fertile as their 20yo counterparts and menopause is a social construct.
that’s how it is today, we’re living in the age of un-deserved, un-earned, special-snowflake entitlement. Logic, truth, and facts go out the window when it comes to “muh feelings”. Don’t worry, it will all end soon, tolerance and apathy are the virtues of a dying society.
Being a landwhale isn’t healthy or sexy no matter how much feminists try to talk people into accepting it as normal.
Redefining beauty and promoting obesity, which is very UNHEALTHY are two completely different things. Being severely overweight is NOT okay. And it is NOT beautiful!
One or even two of those aren’t women.
The only bad thing i see here is the terrible photoshop!
“not okay”, “some vomit”, “landwhale”, the photos show multiply body types, so @timpatten what made you vomit? the photos you liked? or you didn’t? oh, wait no one gives more then half a fuck about your thoughts, and yeah no one cares about mine either but from man to #afucktardtimpatten enjoy life don’t worry about others, fat, black, retarded and all those other things you’re phobic about. #cheersfucktard .
saying “enjoy life don’t worry about others” whilst you spew your heart out about a strangers comment, lol
how dumb are you actually? lol
so. much. photoshop.
Some vomit just came up into my mouth. Promote good health.
Some vomit just came into my mouth. Please promote health. Obesity costs tax payers billions.
