NATURAL BEAUTY BY BEN HOPPER
Personal Project by Ben Hopper (tumblr / facebook) - ”Although armpit hair is a natural state it has become a statement.
Why is that?
For almost a century we have been brainwashed by the beauty industry, encouraging hair removal.
“Natural Beauty” could be classified as a type of protest.
By creating a contrast between common ‘fashionable’ female beauty and the raw unconventional look of female armpit hair thoughts are intrigued and a discussion is made.”
Ben Hopper is a London-based photographer, filmmaker and artist. Primarily working with dancers, circus artists and contemporary nudes.
