Outlast explores a woman’s self esteem and body image as affected by pregnancy, parenthood, and aging. Inherent in these transitions is the rivalry of biology against serenity and the ensuing pitfalls of insecurity and guilt. To outlast is to overcome, and to offer a heritage beyond the confines of self. Curated by Sarah Joy Cabana
