Perfectly Imperfectly

Body love is more than acceptance of self or the acceptance of the body. Body love is about self-worth in general. It's more than our physical appearance.

When, I saw Azari's work I knew he was the perfect person to bring my vision to life. 
Perfectly IMPERFECT ! 
We all have that one flaw or imperfection that we try and cover up. For me it would be my scars.  1yr ago, I suffered from a severe skin breakout that left me bruised and scared both physically and emotionally. It left me covered from head to toe with dark spots and discoloration. I was a shamed, depressed and i suffered in silence. I was afraid to wear shorts or any type of clothing that would reveal my skin condition. Over time being able to regain my self confidence I overcame the emotional pain and all of my physical scars. I felt the courage to share my story through photography. 
I am a man
I am not my scars
I am perfectly IMPERFECT
