Ben Hopper Redefines How We See Beauty

Ben Hopper channels the 1970s with his new photographic series ‘Natural Beauty.’ The London-based photographer started the project in 2007 but has just released the final images to The Huffington Post this month. No one can deny that no one cuts women a slack when it comes to body hair while the same can’t be said of a man and this is where Hopper wants to chime in. The idea behind the powerful images is to challenge the ‘brainwashing’ that the beauty industry puts forth as the norm for women. These photographs serve as a reminder that a little hair should not in any way define a woman’s true beauty.
