An Instagram model lost 5,000 followers after sharing natural photos. Stina Sanders, a model based in London, was warned by her agency that posting “ugly” photos – images showing her acne and eczema, or when she is wearing no make up – would prevent her from being able to work.But that didn’t stop her.
She noticed that she was losing followers by the day. Eventually, she lost 5,000.
And things got even worse when her modelling agency demanded she removed the pictures.
She told the Telegraph: “‘You need to stop sharing these ugly images,’ they told me.‘You might find it hard to get work if you continue to post images of your acne and eczema.’
They asked me to take the images down but I said no. Why? Well, every modelling image is airbrushed to an unrealistic degree. There’s no denying that even the model in the photo can’t ever look as beautiful as the model in the photo.”
