Fashion photographer Victoria Janashvili has spent years snapping pics of today’s most famous models; now, she’s publishing a book of photographs that celebrate all bodies—short, tall, skinny, curvy, and of all ethnicities—starting with models Denise Bidot and Marina Bulatkina.

“Even though the average American woman is a size 14, our society continues to set stereotypes as standards when it relates to the real body image of women,” Janashvili said in a statement. “This is why I spent years of my time taking pictures of different types of models and took part of numerous ‘body image awareness’ campaigns that went viral, and caused lots of discussions. Through my book, I would like to continue to spread the mission and break social stereotypes, so we can take a stand on women feeling confident within their own skin.”
