Overview of Idea

:

unEDit America is a not-for-profit photography project aimed to spread awareness regarding eating disorders, the media's influence on eating disorders, and to help those struggling with these disorders recover. It was inspired by my initial photography project that helped me recover from bulimia.

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

It will help to take my project nationwide. I plan on photographing people affecting by eating disorders all across our nation in order to raise awareness and help people recover. The $5,000 will go to travel expenses, studio costs if necessary, and model payment if necessary.

I love how bold and visceral this project is- you've taken an issue that is all too frequently ignored and addressed it openly and honestly. But above all I love the medium; what a great statement to show how photography can be used as a means to instill self-love and inspire beauty when it is presented in its raw, unaltered form. Go for the gold lass!

Great work so far Nyx, and I can tell you've got big plans! Keep up the amazing effort. My sister suffered from an eating disorder for several months when she was in college. I think a project like yours could help people heal and share their stories with comfort and confidence.

I admire your courage to speak up about your own eating disorder, and your determination to help others overcome their own. Good luck!
