Immerse is a short journey into the realm of self acceptance. I sourced friends of all ages, nationalities, and walks of life. The huge cult of physical perfection creates so much anxiety through constant judgements and compariso ns. The media has immersed us into a world where a very limited and narrow portrayal of beauty and success exist how does this reflect when you look at yourself in the mirror? Do you smile or snarl?
