Australian model Meaghan Kausman did a photo shoot wearing Fella Swim, with an extremely passionate and talented underwater photographer, Pip, When Kausman found that the images had been photo shopped she posted this on her instagram: “Her photos are magical; they capture women in water and celebrate their beauty.”
But the fairy-tale quality of the images didn’t keep Kausman’s body from being tucked and tightened. The model wrote that she was “extremely shocked” to see that the company had posted heavily Photoshopped versions of the photos on its Instagram page.
“They had drastically altered my body, thinning out my stomach and thighs in an attempt to box me into the cultural ideal of beauty,” continued Kausman. “Above is their version, below is the real version. My body is a size 8, not a size 4. That’s my body!”

Eliza Bennett - A woman’s work is never done, 2011Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’.
