JTG #38 Skin Positivity with Photographer Sophie Harris Taylor [Epidermis]
Skin Positivity with Photographer Sophie Harris Taylor [Epidermis]
In this episode we talk about the skin positivity movement with photographer Sophie Harris Taylor and her lastest exhibit, Epidermis.
The skin positivity movement is one of the best things to come out of social media. One project making major waves across Instagram right now is Epidermis by Sophie Harris Taylor. The series, which features 20 images of bare-faced women showcasing their common skin conditions including rosacea, acne and hyperpigmentation in all their glory, is a refreshing and much welcome move in the age of filters and Photoshop.
About our guest
Documenting the personal lives and experiences of her own and others, Sophie’s work is effortlessly truthful, approached with a sensitivity and confidence. She is renowned for her images created with natural and ambient light sources, which lend her work an unusual softness and depth. Typically portraiture based, with some elements of place and surroundings, she uses people to express her own preoccupations and concerns. Although seemingly diverse in subject matter and to an extent documentary, there is consistently some element of her own vulnerability. Regardless of content, Harris-Taylors’s work is crucially bound together by aesthetics, always seeking to in some way glorify that which is not conventional.
Sophie’s latest exhibit Epidermis breaks down the stigmas of skin issues. Sophie lives in London and received both her MA and BA (Hons) in Photography from Kingston University.
We start the episode with a 5-minute coaching session where you’ll explore how to awaken to your true power on your journey to glow.

- How we can change the beauty industry
- How to lead courageously and embody the change we want to see in the world
