Can anyone point me to some photography that features people with non-idealized body types as a matter of course, not as the main subject of the work? IE those who don’t necessarily fit into standard definitions of gender or beauty? I’ve got no problem with these portrayals but where are the portrayals of people who don’t fit this mold? Are photographers simply following the lead of advertising and editorial photography? Would love links to some Tumblrs or websites that feature such work.

FILM WANTED

I’m looking to buy 35mm and medium format (120 plz) c41 process film (colour or monochrome). It can be expired or not. If you’ve got some gathering dust on a shelf -or better yet gathering frost in a freezer- let me know via tumblr or email (rjforgo at gmail). If you’re near or in Vancouver or the Okanagan I can pick up. If you’re further away and want to ship, I can pay via PayPal. Thanks!

“Since I moved here, I started working on a series entitled "Abstract Canada." The main idea behind it is looking at Canada with foreign eyes and expectations—French ones in my case—and realizing the most common things can look very strange due to the slight twisty differences compared to what I’m used to seeing everyday in France. Like, when you stare at an object for a long time on acid and it starts looking so weird and unreal, or when you repeat the same word until it sounds like a meaningless pure form.”
