Photographer Jen Davis is awesome, and brave, and fascinating. Over 10 years she documented herself in self-portraits and shares a very intimate and emotional look into a woman's experience being overweight and her subsequent 110 pound weight loss. The photos are mesmerizing and thoughtful. So many women shy away from being in front of the camera, does this change your mind about being photographed yourself? Click through to see 12 photos from her series and let me know what you think!

This is a fabulous concentration idea to share with my AP students. Photography student Jen Davis began documenting her life in a series of photos called Self-Portraits, snapping her most personal moments of her weight loss and journey to self acceptance.
