“Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.”
- Kurt Vonnegut (via chubby-bunnies)
“Who taught me to suck in my stomach,
or my cheeks?
Who told me to stand with my legs apart
and my hips thrust back
to create the illusion of a gap
between my thighs?
Who made me believe that the most beautiful part of me
is my negative space?”
- Negative Space (via thatkindofwoman)

“All the hardest, coldest people you meet were once as soft as water. And that’s the tragedy of living.”

PORTRAITS OF NEW YORK CITY EDUCATORS AFTER SCHOOL
After the bell has rung and students vanish in a blaze of noise, Brooklyn-based Aliza Eliazarov captures New York City educators in the quiet after the chaos. A former teacher of eight years, Eliazarov describes this time as a poignant moment in each day, the silence flooded with a range of emotions. Posing a series of simple questions, Eliazarov allows these teachers for once to turn the attention to their own personal musings and burdens. Whether the response is pensive or anxious, content or exhausted, each teacher endures with an unceremonious bravery and resolve. Honoring those seldom thanked, See Me After School is a glimpse into the everyday triumphs and trials of today’s resilient educators.
