A lover of life, people and most of all, her husband and three children,
Taryn Brumfitt is the founder behind the Body Image Movement.
What is the Body Image Movement?
Despite being happily married, and successfully juggling motherhood with running a thriving photography business, Taryn Brumfitt was privately struggling with crippling body image issues. Close to resorting to plastic surgery to ‘fix’ her post-childbirth body, Taryn decided that what she really needed to change was not in fact her body, it was her attitude towards it.
This was the beginning of The Body Image Movement, a now an internationally recognised crusade that recognises the importance of body diversity, redefining and rewriting beauty ideals by harnessing and facilitating positive body image activism.
The Body Image Movement teaches women the value and power of loving their body from the inside out, supporting health and happiness at every size. Advocating natural ageing and natural beauty, the movement aims to uncover the true beauty that lies within each and every one of us, the beauty of a person you can’t physically see; one’s humility, kindness, humour, respect and generosity.
EMBRACE The documentary that will create a global change.
There’s only so much you can say in 140 characters or in a four minute television interview, so what happens when you’re bursting with so much more you want to say? So much more you need to say in order to create global change? A born storyteller, Taryn Brumfitt knew there was only one way to share her journey from self loathing to self acceptance. Introducing Embrace, the documentary.
From following The Sydney Skinny, the world’s largest nude ocean swim dedicated to helping people ‘drown’ their body insecurities, to exploring the sexualisation and excessive photo editing of women in the media and the unethical tricks marketers use to target women’s insecurities, Embrace uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have brighter future.
After posting a non-traditional ‘before’ and ‘after’ photo on social media, Taryn became the instant focus of media attention the world over. People were astonished – how could a woman possibly love her body ‘after’, with the visible signs of bearing three children? Many applauded her for her bravery in posting such raw imagery while many berated her for promoting obesity, going as far as labelling her a poor role model for her kids.
This got Taryn to thinking. The culture of body loathing and body shaming had reached epic proportions worldwide.
