What role does mental health play in the health industry?

As a response to diet culture, in 2019 Fanny Beckman created the photo series "Women of My Generation". By portraying women who felt unrepresentated in mainstream media, wearing only underwear, she challenges the modern beauty standards. But, what started as a photo series has uncovered conversations which are just as important.

Every week, Fanny invites a special guest to share their story. This podcast covers everything from fashion to mental health issues, activism to family relationships - and most of all: body image.


Sheena Howard is a multimedia artist focusing on using her platform to raise awareness of underrepresented topics.

In this series finale, hear Sheena talk about her work surrounding the black queer community, her latest book Nina's Whisper which highlights domestic abuse within same sex relationships, and finding confidence to break norms in a predominantly white industry.
