These images are part of series of black and white, unretouched photographs from Project Beauty -a project by Photographer Mandy Pasker that celebrates unique and unaltered beauty of young women (primarily teens/young adults) and empowers girls to love themselves just as they are. AMIDST will be sharing selections from this series over the next few weeks.
""Before Project Beauty, I always thought I looked bare without any mascara. I always thought people would judge me or look at me differently with no mascara. But after the photo shoot and after being comfortable with the girls around me, I look back and feel normal with and without mascara!""
