A couple of years ago on a dark January day, I walked into a storefront on Kings Street in Toronto with little knowledge of how transformative the contents inside would be. It was called Body Thoughts and it was a traveling art show-experience focused on creating dialogue and expanding our knowledge of how we perceive our bodies. Run by two young women, each of whom had their own body image struggles and conversations to share, Body Thoughts ended up being one of my highlights of 2016 and an experience I haven't forgotten.
Fast-forward to today and one of the founders of Body Thoughts and the creative vision behind it, Alexa Mazzarello is on the podcast today to chat about that experience, her struggles with body image and how her perception of her body has changed since taking on photography full-time.
Alexa is an insanely talented photographer, body positive creative and a friend. It's been a year in the making bringing her on the show and I'm so happy to have her on board today!
Here are some things we discussed:
