The ‘Behind the Scars’ project continues to grow. There will soon be a photo shoot in New York. In London, I gave an interview for Channel 4 and I would love to share with you some of the stories and behind the scenes action. The photographer Sophie Mayanne does not alter the photos in post-production.
It was great to be involved in this initiative alongside Kelly Jackson, Deborah James and Michele Elman all of whom appear in the video. Kelly sums up her feelings by saying ‘I just want to show other people that it is not something to be ashamed of or embarrassed by.’
As Michele said ‘I would love to see a scarred princess,’ as scars are normally associated with villains. Thanks to Sophie for such an exciting initiative…’scarred not scared.’
You can follow all of us on Instagram: Deborah James (@bowelbabe), Michele Elman (@scarrednotscared), Kelly Jackson (@kellys_smile), Sophie Mayanne (@sophiemayanne & @behindthescars_) & Samanta Bullock (@samabullock).
