Images: Jeff Tinard
Rather than presenting images of women as glamours or poised, refined or perfected, photographer Jeff Tinard shares the vibrancy and personality of women.
The cinematic film images seem to capture a snapshot of an intimate or lively scene whereby models are often caught in movement. From brushing their teeth, to dancing at a party, these women boast of charisma and character rather than merely their physical beauty. In this way, Tinard is able to highlight the confidence and personality of the women he photographs.
When we had asked Tinard what beauty means to him, he responded with: “To me beauty is an attitude!”. In a society consumed by the ideals of physical beauty, Tinard’s focus on character offers a much needed understanding of female beauty. So, in a social media influenced age of selfies and photoshopping, perhaps Tinard’s photography can encourage everyday women to capture their attitude and find the beauty within their personality.
