Meagan explores self-love through self-portraits and photography and thus deals with her body, her home.
“I am a self portrait film artist who values raw beauty and authenticity in my work. I have felt ashamed of my body most of my life. I’ve struggled with an eating disorder and negative body image for as long as I can remember. Shooting self-portraits on film shows me how there is no need for the fancy gear or retouching to create something beautiful. Each frame is real and shows me the beauty that can be captured in a simple, honest moment.
In this set of photos I wanted to wear a more masculine shirt and have it fall off my shoulders until it was off. My shoulders are broad and strong – something that has hindered my feelings of being feminine or beautiful. I wanted to show that I can embrace this insecurity of mine and that I can still be feminine and soft; no matter how the shape of my body is.”
