Perfectly imperfect











These photos just speak for themselves. I admire anyone who isn't letting their disability get in the way of doing the things they want to do. Each of these individuals are beautiful, and in my eyes, they are even more beautiful for what they represent. You all know by now I'm all for equality for disabled people, and I admire greatly anyone who uses disability to inspire others, and create a positive out of a negative. Every one of these photos inspires me no end, and I'm sure if I knew the personal stories of these people they would inspire me 100x more.

  24. Amazingly beautiful people. I have a minor spinal deformity but it made me hide away under baggy, shapeless clothes. Stupid really, most people notice because I walk with a slight limp. Recently I've decided to embrace my body shape and feel much better about it.

  28. these are very strong images, powerful and.. ugh I can't find the perfect word for this, in spanish would be "imponentes"...let me google the translation .."imposing, intense, moving"...somewhat like that..
    anyway...it's beautiful to see work like this... reminding us that perfection doesn't mean a perfect body or in this case "complete"... it just consists in what we have inside and out.. a combination of both.. a balance,,,same goes for the pictures about curvy or a bit overweight models... to me, that's more real than the skinny anorexic ones that get all the attention anyway...
    this all reminds me a documentary I saw once... geez you need to see it.. it was this store, (which I can't remember) that made mannequins for their window displays, based on the bodies of disabled people... and they put them out there, dressed in the store's clothes and filmed the people from the streets that stopped to look at them...you know what.. watch the video.. it's pretty powerful too, it made me cry...here's the link: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2518194/Pro-Infirmis-advert-creates-mannequins-based-bodies-disabled-people.html
