The Truth About Body Image

Illusions of the Body, a project by Chicago-based photographer Gracie Hagen, has showing up just about everywhere lately. This body of work shows us both the beautiful and pathetic sides of the human body, something that we do not often see in the media. Hagen is attempting to "shatter the myth" of our expectations of beauty. By shooting a variety of different ages and races, Hagen is declaring that there is no norm when it comes to the human body.
