This is the “Self-Acceptance Challenge”. It’s not one of the weekly photo challenges, but rather an ongoing one; in other words there’s no deadline you have to send your submissions in by and, to be perfectly truthful, everyone who takes part is a winner.
The picture that is to be reproduced is one that “thetomska” posted and I have reposted twice on Twitter.
Why did I choose this image for this challenge? Beyond the fact that I find his statement immensely empowering, the straight on camera angle and his posture in the image are incredibly unflattering; his slightly hunched, unphotoshopped appearance allow no room for pretence.
I challenge you to reproduce this picture the best you can and post it on your Twitter account or send it to me (@IbanSaram) on Twitter for inclusion in this gallery.
All body types are welcome! Both women and men can take part!
