about-face. is a storytelling project that seeks to transform the stories women tell ourselves about our bodies. Through visual documentation and a series of intimate conversations, we are exploring the experiences that have been most critical to shaping women's ideas about beauty and identity. These stories first appeared in our pop-up art gallery last March. Now, we look forward to sharing them in more detail on our blog.
Thank you Tariq Tarey for capturing these stunning portraits, and thank you to the women who trusted us enough to share a piece of their lives with us.
