Many people instinctually believe that the body-positive movement applies more to women, but the Everyman Project hopes to change this perception and empower men to feel great about themselves.
Often we ignore the fact that men (as well as women) can feel confined within societal pressures to conform. The reality is that not everybody has the same body type or even personal aesthetic. In a time where diversity is being celebrated and we are working to be a more inclusive society, photographer Tarik Carroll is working to redefine male beauty with his work. His goal is to empower men to feel confident in their own skin, no matter their shape or size. According to Carroll, "I want to challenge society’s obsession with hyper-masculinity and perfection by capturing men/male identifying from all backgrounds."
The Everyman Project hopes to open up a larger conversation about male body image issues and what it means to be a man.
