Project: Self Love by Jess Fielder

Jess Fielder is a Photographer in the US who put together a very heartwarming shoot in Columbus, Mississippi titled Project: Self Love.

The photo series resonated with us at Bressante because we also believe that you don’t owe anyone your prettiness. You don’t owe your partner, your kids or your boss. We are all so much more than our outward appearance. It is so much more important for anyone to be comfortable and happy with their body and soul. The quote by Erin McKean:

“You Don’t Have to Be Pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother. You don’t owe it to your children. You don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked female.” – Erin McKean

Walking for health

Hello, My name is Algoma. Algoma means “valley of flowers”. I come from a big family. I have seven siblings. I grew up in the great outdoors. My childhood consisted of running around with my siblings and cousins. Ever since I was a child, I was intrigued by nature. I love flowers, the greeneries and the lakes. That is probably why I love walking so much.
