British influencer Georgie Clarke made the decision to advocate for the importance of more positivity in the way society looks at bodies, especially the female body. Through her Instagram platform, which has over 700,000 followers, she has become one of the most active voices on social media showing the contrast.
Former reality show contestant “Survival of the Fittest, Georgie Clarke is always very direct when composing her Instagram posts: on one side, we see an image built for photography. On the other, just her, simply relaxed. Many Instagram users have come across other models on social media reminding us how easily a photo can be crafted.
For Georgie Clarke both pictures are beautiful. According to her, it’s not wrong to show a little perfection, as long as we know how to have the same self-love and respect when it’s reality that appears in the lens.
One minute apart and both for Instagram. On the left I’m striking a pose, on the right I’m relaxedGeorgie Clarke
In this logic of demystifying what appears on social media, Georgie reveals the small details that can make two photos that have been taken just one minute apart, look like they are from another time. She has specified that six steps are enough to explain the differences:
- Contract the stomach
- Find the right light
- Choose the best angle
- Contract your buttocks
- Stand on your tiptoes
- Hold your breath
The influencer doesn’t stop there with the explanations. Some of her publications are about applications that are used on social networks to change images. She also shares videos where she shows how the simple posture already changes the final result of a photo.
Both images are on my Instagram because I believe both images show who I am. I want to be able to create beautiful images but at the same time show the truth and reality behind the supposed ‘perfect images’Georgie Clarke
For Georgie Clarke, it is not even a question of whether we should give priority to one that is more focused on beauty or one that is more real. “The comparison serves to show how a person who knows what it is to be a model will be able to create a certain image.”
What has earned Clarke the most praise is the honesty with which she takes on imperfections that usually don’t fit on social media. Over the past few months, the model has also shared publications where she openly shows and talks about cellulite or stretch marks. “Remember, you look beautiful in any lighting,” she shares with her followers.
