interrupt shame with love

diptych banner

This set of banner focuses specifically on the issue of body shaming. Body shaming is the act of putting down or criticizing someone's figure and pressuring them to change their look in order to fit certain societal standards. It is evident in the media with ads pressuring people to develop unhealthy diets, forms of exercise, etc. in order to achieve a more "perfect" look. Body shaming causes divide amongst people as well as within one's personal self. I placed the caption, "Interrupt Shame with Love" as a simple and straight forward statement to encourage the viewer to reflect on whether they personally shame others or have fallen victim to shaming.
