The Weight of My Thoughts

For my design class last semester I was given free range to choose what I wanted to photograph. I’m a pretty indecisive person so coming up with an idea and sticking to it is usually pretty difficult for me. However, this idea came to me so quickly that I had to go with it. The more I photographed, the more I related to this project. I titled it “the weight of my thoughts” because I am constantly thinking about my weight. I started wondering if I was the only one who thought about my body size in unusual places. From my personal experience, I feel like women are held to a higher/different standard than men when it comes to body image. “Dad bod” is an actual thing but I’m sure if we (as women) tried to start a “mom bod” phenomenon it wouldn’t go over as well. I wanted to create a project that women from all over the world could relate to and realize they aren’t alone in the weight of their thoughts.
