Artist Documents 160-Pound Weight Loss In Dressing Room Photos

When photographer Julia Kozerski lost 160 pounds following her wedding in 2009, her weight loss journey culminated in a beautiful–and heartbreaking–nude portrait series called “Half,” which explored the emotional repercussions of losing half of your self. But in addition to these striking artworks, Kozerski was also documenting the process in a more casual, intimate way: in the dressing room with her iPhone. She didn’t plan to share these photos with anyone (she took them to map her progress), but I’m really glad she changed her mind. The pictures aren’t aesthetically perfect, they’re just real, and it’s fascinating to see an honest illustration of someone in the process of transforming their body in such a radical way. For Kozerski, these quick iPhone shots are intense reminders of a confusing time: “I recall the thrills of trying on smaller sizes and the satisfaction of feeling more attractive, even sexy,” she told NPR. “More so, I remember the devastation of not recognizing the person reflected back to me in the mirror.” See all the photos on Kozerski’s website.

When my brother texted me a picture of this sign that he found hung up on the wall of his rural high school, I knew I had found my true calling. I mean, I’ve come across many miniature horse care and feeding jobs in my day, but none with such a flexible schedule. Amelia, consider this post my two weeks’ notice.

Fall Field Trips Call For Pretty Plaid Satchels

Just one look at this gorgeous wool and leather satchel has me chomping at the bit for a weekend road trip. I’ll wear a baggy sweater and gaze out the window at the blur of colorful leaves, and I don’t even care where the destination is, as long as there’s hot chocolate. Aaaahhh, fall, I’ve missed you so.

The other day, my friend Becca and I were talking about how much we miss being in school sometimes, particularly those moments when you’re sitting in class and have some huge epiphany about society or media or social justice and you’re like, “Oh my god, I have to tell the world RIGHT NOW.” Although I won’t be joining those of you headed back to campus this month, I will be enthusiastically stocking up on school office supplies, and thanks to this clever tutorial, I can’t wait to turn a couple 99-cent composition books into chalkboard notebooks, perfect for recipes, random brainstorms, and world-changing manifestos.
