Natural Beauty is a series of pictures taken by London-based photographer Ben Hopper. In 2007, Hopper started this photo series to challenge what he described as the societal ‘brainwashing’ done by the beauty industry.

Using an eclectic group of models, actresses, designers and friends, Hopper’s pictures highlight a woman’s true beauty, her armpit hair, and the timely reminder that those two things are in no way mutually exclusive. ‘As I matured as a person and an artist, I realized I liked [armpit hair],’ Hopper told The Huffington Post. ‘I think it can be a beautiful look.’ Read the rest of the article here.

Ben Hopper in his facebook album tells, “Natural Beauty” could be classified as a type of protest. By creating a contrast between common ‘fashionable’ female beauty and the raw unconventional look of female armpit hair thoughts are intrigued and a discussion is made.
