Expected standards


The idea for the project was something that was on my mind for a long time, surrounded by teenagers (and adults) so obsessed with their looks, worries if they fit in and the huge pressure that brings starting at a very young age. Everyone is daily surrounded by and confronted with the sometimes absurd pressure to fit within expected standards. Forgetting that being satisfied with who you are and finding your passion is way more important in this life. Mesmerized by the intense beauty of Melanie Gaydos she was for me the perfect ambassador for this project.
