Photographer Challenges ‘American Beauty’ Standards

San Francisco-based photographer Carey Fruth is looking to redefine what American beauty is with a photo series (of the same name) that has women of all body types posing in romantic beds of flower petals.


Fruth was inspired by a racy scene from the 1999 movie of the same name in which Kevin Spacey fantasized about one of his daughter’s friends.

Fruth told Huffpost.

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.”
