Embrace your scars – they are who you are!


“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”― Kahlil Gibran.  Irrespective of the size of the scar, there are many who prefer to cover or hide their scars instead of letting them be. This is more due to the social stigma and the negative visual appeal attached to it. However, what many forget is the fact that each scar, no matter how big or small, is far more than just a mark on their skin. Each abrasion has a deeper and emotional story to it. To break the imagery around scars and empower people, a 24-year-old fashion and portrait photographer Sophie Mayanne has come up with a project ‘Behind The Scars’. The pictures feature individuals with scars and the story behind them. It is both enthralling and empowering to know the journey of their scars. Here are 10 powerful pictures that will inspire many. (Source: Sophiemayanne/Instagram)
