CUB Love: Strong is the New Pretty

"I suddenly realized, wow, all of my strongest images are of my girls just being themselves — their freckled, emotional, sometimes dirty, messy selves”

Commercial and fine art photographer Kate T. Parker has produced a series of beautifully arresting portraits of her daughters. Strong is the New Pretty offers a powerful interpretation of girlhood today and a reappraisal of what it truly means. Through the project, Parker's girls demonstrate their unrelenting spirit, self-assuredness and determination. 

"We love them as they are, loud, dirty, competitive [...] I wanted this series of images to show their boldness, their strength and the beauty in them, as they are."

These girls are fierce, they know it and CUB loves it.
