This beautiful photo taken by the very talented and passionate @steagall.photo is part of a fundraising campaign for my boxing travels and expenses this year. We are currently looking for a gallery to exhibit. (If you have a contact, please get in contact). Since publication this morning in the @nzherald I have had many messages from mum's, dad's and women I know from around the globe saying this project of artistic nudes is inspiring and that their daughters think it is cool and brilliant to see a woman who accepts and likes her body. It is empowering for them and gives them an alternative to the current societal rhetoric where we think we (and our bodies) are not good enough or beautiful enough. This has made our project all that more special. . . Thank you to all those involved in making this happen. Lindsay Neil for your crazy idea and drive to make it happen. Nandan @artisthetical for the beautiful makeup and support. @jandancefit for your support and creativity. . . #teampritchard #selflove #marcossteagallphotography #nude #beautifulbody #bodylove #selfacceptance #stong #woman #boxer #womanboxer #boxing #fightlikeagirl #fightinglikeagirl
