This collection seemed like the perfect blend between Strong Is the New Pretty by Kate T. Parker and Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York. So the wait to get approved for this ARC was nearly excruciating with me checking my emails every day for a week. But I'm glad to say that it lived up to the...

This was so lovely. It's really nice hearing stories from women all across the world. I would have liked the text to be a bit longer - some pictures didn't have any information about the woman, and I found I wanted to know more about them, Humans of New York style! - but it's a really lovely dive...

*I received an ARC copy from Netgally for an honest review.* This is actually the first photography book that I've ever reviewed. I decided to expand my horizon and now will be incorporating photography books. I definitely liked the concept of this photographers series. She had a dream to travel...

Beauty is diverse 💕
I would have loved to have more info of every photo (some of them don't even have a text) because I want to know more about all these women, but it is an amazing collection of pictures, and I love that it reflects diversity in terms of race, ability, and sexual orientation.

I love this book not only for its incredibly beautiful portraits and stories but for the way it made me feel as well. The whole time I felt as if I were standing in front of these women, mesmerized by the stories they had to tell. All in all, a wonderful project!
Some readers said that the book d...
