Welcome to BAWDY!
BAWDY is a visual series that captures and illustrates unarticulated and, at times, compromising subject matter in an unorthodox fashion. Each season focuses on a number of “Chapters” that concentrate on a specific theme. The series is extremely expressive and can be somewhat intrusive mentally and emotionally. BAWDY exposes real life experiences and may present controversial material at times.
The purpose of BAWDY is to portray emotions, experiences, or situations through visual representation rather than verbal expression. BAWDY is the ongoing search of self and understanding, challenging the unspeakable, initiating discussion, and encouraging perspective and self-awareness.

SEASON 1 MODELS
JANTE x SHAPE
"I really believe there are a lot of issues with body image that aren’t highlighted in the everyday media. A lot of people assume that certain “body types” are nicer than others and that people with these so called “body types” never feel insecure or feel the pressures from the media. I would love to be able to show through this chapter that not one single body type is better than the other and that everyone with every kind of body shape has to deal with the pressures of self image presented through many different forms of media. I would also love to be able to show and maybe help people learn to love their body type regardless of what the media says."

GRACE x INFLUENCE
"With every breath I take, I am a living reminder of the struggles and victories of those before me who created a legacy for the power and presence of young Asian people."
