Kyla The Great

Attn: SoCal Chubs – Kyla The Great Wants to Photograph You

Kyla just launched the Fat From The Side ProjectOne of our favorite bloggers and champions of fat acceptance, Kyla Hagedorn, AKA Kyla The Great, is starting a photo project that focuses on photographing fat bodies from the side. Here’s what she says about the project:

As I’ve said time and time again, our profile view is one that we don’t see very often. I believe this is why it’s such a pain in the butt to accept along with the rest of our bodies. Even I have days where I’m thrown off by the sight of my body from the side — not because it’s a bad thing, but simply because it’s not an angle of myself I’ve spent much time looking at.

So, I need your help ! If you live in Southern California and want to be a part of this project, please contact me ! Photos can be clothed or nude, whatever your comfort level is. This is open to ALL genders !
I’m not the world’s best photographer, but I have passion for both it and body acceptance. This project is going to be one from the heart, and I can’t wait to share it with the rest of the world. <3

She’s even started a new tumblr page dedicated to it called Fat From The Side (if your workplace frowns on nude bodies, NSFW). Even if you’re not in Southern California, you can submit a photo to the site. It’s a great idea that we hope to see take off. From the last update we read, there’s quite a bit of interest already. Take a look and if you’re in the area, reach out to Kyla to be part of the project.
