Vizzzibility started off as a self-portrait project for Molly’s senior thesis project at Maryland Institute College of Art, but it quickly became apparent that visibility is needed for all bodies. In order for the project to be successful, it would need to include many other bodies, not just one.
We are all constantly inundated with bodies that show an ideal of beauty that barely anyone matches up to: thin, white, cisgender, clear skin, no body hair, relaxed hair, as Westernized as possible. While there is nothing inherently wrong with fitting those descriptors, those images surround us so much that it is really easy to forget that other things are beautiful, too.
The purpose of this blog is to increase visibility for all bodies as much as we can. Every single person who has been pictured here in the past, and every person who will be pictured in the future, is beautiful, valid, and important.
