All bodies are good bodies

Lovable is a photography program for young women.

Organized by two young photographers – Nicola Hodges and Sylvia McFadden – its goal is to empower women to fight back against unrealistic beauty standards and the ad campaigns aimed at women’s bodies.

According to Hodges and McFadden, Lovable will use digital photography to “radically shift our views of our own bodies and what the media wants from them. We have the choice to love our own bodies in the shape, form [and] ability that they are right now.”

Working out of the Purple Thistle in east Vancouver, many of the photo shoots will happen outdoors and around the city at community gardens, parks and other public spaces.
