A London based photographer Ben Hopper has started by himself to challenge the age-old beauty standards for women, set by the society we live in, with his offensive ‘Natural Beauty’ photo series.
The ‘Natural Beauty’ photo series points at asking our mindset that has labeled female body hairs unsexy. The series scrutinies into society’s attitude towards women and how it has directed rules that have tagged women with body hairs unattractive or unappealing.
Ben’s work is excellent and he catches a woman’s beauty in its natural character. Have a look at some of his best works.
