Portraits of youths who are unhappy with their natural bodies

Body image is a hot topic when it comes to young people and photographer Michelle Sank has gone and brought her In My Skin series into the public eye to challenge body image and to document the ‘transgenderism and the struggle young people have to live within a body they were born into but have no affiliation with.’

Sank captured candid photos of youth in the UK, all under 25, dealing with eating disorders, body dysmorphia, body transformations, and those considering cosmetic surgery to fit the ideal of what it means to be beautiful in Western society.
