This series was made as a reflection of my experiences growing up with insecurities from the way I looked, overcoming changes through puberty and the scars it left. Meeting these strong and empowering women with different goals and aspirations enhanced my understanding about these skin conditions - although these are not an extensive list of all skin conditions humans could have but this is an exploration of women’s frustrations and way of dealing with their insecurities within their skin.
