Photographer Questions Beauty Standards With Photos Of Women With Unshaven Armpits


London-based photographer Ben Hopper creates a photo series called “Natural Beauty” that proposes a healthier take on the beauty standards that women are subjected to every day of their lives. The photographs feature beautiful women with slightly unexpected feature – unshaved underarms.

What’s interesting is that many of these women are actresses and models – in other words, the kind of young, slender, and smooth people that often set beauty standards. However, this serves to highlight the main idea of the photos, rather than contradict it, as it shows that body hair, or the lack thereof, has little to do with the overall beauty of a woman.

“I don’t want to say that I want women to start growing their armpit hair,” Hopper told Huffpost. “I just think that it’s a possibility and people shouldn’t dismiss it. I’d like people to just question [beauty standards], the whole thing.”

“Although armpit hair is a natural state it has become a statement,” he notices. “Why is that?”
