you do not owe beauty to anyone.. by IsisPina you do not owe beauty to anyone.. by IsisPina
all I see is magazines with "beauty" tips..
people in and endless journey to look beautiful.
but what really is beauty?
personally, to me beauty lies under the skin :) it's not about how beautiful your hair is, the color of your skin, your clothing... you know, all the superficial things.
Beauty lies in the naturality of things.. the heart <3

anybody want to follow my 365 on flickr? :) www.flickr.com/isispina

I really enjoyed your gallery: nice artistic photos (ideas, stories, meaningful, ...), and good photos (knowledge of techniques). Bravo!

yeah, that's true.
but since this world doesn't seem to understand that, you can be beautiful in the inside trying not to neglect the outside.
it's not about looking beautiful for others. when i look beautiful it's actually me who is feeling better.

I don't feel that the size of the model changes the meaning of this. It's a powerful message and can apply to anyone. It's not just chubby people who have self-esteem issues.
If you take a look at the magazine's you'll noticed how photoshopped most of them are. I know a lot of people like to think celebrities don't have souls, but how must that feel to some of them? To have an amazing shoot and look at the awesome raw photos and then once the project is completed and printed they realize that 4 inches have been taken off their waist and their ribs have been smoothed out. That must suck. D:

If only that body wasn't exactly like the today's stereotype of a perfect female body I'd consider taking the message seriously.

A very true statement!
Beauty is inside a beautiful person. Alas the body does not always fit the inside of a person. Some people are able to show their inner image over their outer image. Others are not and stare at 'the greener grass at the neighbors', so to say.
I dare you to challenge to portrait a person with a face that most people will describe as 'ugly', ('very ugly' if you will) and show the beauty within... I'm waiting, because I know sometime you will do that.

By the way:
At least this photograph did not need any squeezing / stretching in Photoshop a.o. and shows a true image. All the spots and flaws are still in the result. Thanks, Isis, thank you so much for providing us with honest art. I love you for that! Endlessly.
