FREEDOM from perfection
#ProjectBEAUTY is a national movement aimed at rediscovering true natural beauty and self acceptance in teen girls. The project started as a small shoot by photographer Thomas Nguyen with his Senior model team in Cincinnati. But it quickly grew as he encouraged other photographers to step forward and deliver a powerful message. He challenged them to help free these girls from the idea of perfection, and to empower them to not only feel confident about themselves, but to embrace the ‘flaws’ that make them uniquely beautiful.
He found that the girls he worked with all have common desires. They want to figure out who they are, value themselves, and embrace their true inner beauty.
