Lately, the fashion industry has been relying on the tools of Photoshop more and more. Retouching pictures of models makes it almost impossible for women to feel beautiful or good about the way they look. Plus sized models Callie Thorpe and Diana Sirokai have asked photographer Karizza to heavily edit their bodies so they can show just how harmful Photoshop can be. And, also to demonstrate the unhealthy beauty standards that we have been subjected to by the media.

Collaborating with the photographer Karizza, they shared side by side photos of them. One photo is photoshoped and the other is not.

” It’s no wonder women are laden with insecurities. For years we have been subjected to perfect airbrushed and often altered images across the media. Whilst Photoshop has its place and need in some parts of industries this is the extreme when it comes to editing, it just goes to show how much we can really alter ourselves. ” Callie captioned the photo.

This should serve as an inspiration to stop trying to live up to the standard of others, and learn how to accept and love our bodies.
