My project focusses on empowering young women towards self-accepting, and feeling positive about themselves by capturing their unique interests and passions through portraiture. I believe that this age group (17 to 25) have many pressures to deal with, whether it’s managing our further education, working and finding careers, whilst also finding the time to socialise, keep healthy and enjoy ourselves. This project aims to prove that beauty purely comes from within, allowing self-love and self-acceptance in what we love investing our time doing outside of the pressure zone. I photographed these young women where they feel most confident and feel empowered by what they love doing, from a competitive sport to simply wandering their favourite city.
