The Best Ever Before And After Weight Loss Photos You Will Ever See

When Beth approached her friend, photographer Blake Morrow, to do before and after photos prior to her gastric bypass surgery, they ditched the usual cliche photos and came up with a unique concept.

This became The Beth Project, a photo series more than two years in the making, featuring pop culture-inspired portraits that show off Beth’s dramatic weight loss in a fun way.

We shot ‘before Beth’ a few weeks before her surgery. Two years and 150 pounds lost later, we took her into my studio and photographed her ‘after Beth’ She was fearless and was able to take advantage of her theatre background to bring drama to the shoots! Beth’s theatre background brought a depth to all of her photos, conveying some pretty fun and vulnerable emotions.”

LGBT Microaggressions You Hear On A Daily Basis

Kevin Nadal, Associate Professor of Psychology at CUNY, asked some of his friends to share the microaggressions they’ve experienced as members of the LGBT community. Prof Nadal, was inspired this photography project about racial microaggressions.

The term “microaggression” was coined the term in the ’70s by Dr. Chester Pierce. It means

Brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioural, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of colour.

Its crazy, but we all hear these digs and to many they have become a day-to-day occurance.
