It’s a scene etched in many a movie goers mind – actress Mena Suvari rolling around in a room full of rose petals in Kevin Spacey’s “American Beauty” dream.

Photographer Carey Fruth has made her own interpretation of this scene with her “American Beauty” image series.  In it, women of all shapes and sizes  which shows women of all shapes and sizes lying on a bed of flowers. Fruth wants to retake that quintessential male fantasy and use it to empower women of all colors, ages and sizes to be happy about their bodies:

“By stepping into a fantasy dream girl world and by letting go of that fear, they free themselves up to direct that energy they once wasted on telling themselves that they weren’t good enough to elsewhere in their life,” Fruth said. (via artfido)

Green Heart

Kauai’s Mount Waialeale; generally considered the rainiest spot on the planet, drops much of its water down 3,000-foot walls so sheer, that there are only two days per year where the sun passes overhead; leaving no shadows on all of its walls.
