Expanding our perceptions of beauty goes beyond size and age to religion and culture.  I was delighted to discover a group of street photographers who scout, photograph and post images of Muslim women to challenge our stereotypes around the Hijab. Calling their subjects “Hijabistas,” they show real women in their authentic beauty who help proclaim their identities through creativity and belief. I look forward to welcoming these women to our team at the Ben Barry Agency Inc. We will eradicate ridged ideals together by daring to be ourselves. Please visit their blog at: http://hijabshigh.blogspot.com/
