{Podcast Month} Escape Diet Prison with Anne-Sophie Reinhardt: Body Liberation Through Photography

✨ For the month of December, enjoy these podcast episodes while I slow down, take a breath and plan for next year. ✨

When I started my photography business in 2015, I had never seen or met another fat photographer. I wasn’t sure if it was even possible. (Because what we see around us tells us what is possible for people like us.) Now, of course, I know many fat photographers, both because I’ve deliberately sought out other people in underrepresented bodies, and because we fat folks are paving the way in our industries β€” but it was pretty intimidating not even knowing whether anyone would be willing to work with a photographer who was fat.

In my episode of Escape Diet Prison with Anne-Sophie Reinhardt @annesophiereinhardt, we look at this dynamic in detail, plus:

πŸ¦‹ what it was like to grow up without a TV and how that influenced my body image

πŸ¦‹ reclaiming the word fat for myself

πŸ¦‹ being an average size kid and how my body changed during puberty

πŸ¦‹ the time I went through the typical weight cycling that results from dieting

πŸ¦‹ fat bodies, fashion and hiding your femininity

πŸ¦‹ the urban myth of knowing someone who’s lost SO much weight and kept it off

πŸ¦‹ my struggle with rejecting healthism and knowing that no body is β€œbad” because it doesn’t meet our culture’s standards of health

πŸ¦‹ why it was such a big deal for me to learn about the social determinants of health

πŸ¦‹ what we can learn from nature about our bodies and our roles on this planet
