Alyscia Cunningham is a Author, Film Director, Photographer, Speaker and Entrepreneur. Her work focuses on changing the dialogue around beauty standards for women through documentary film and unaltered photography. Through her lens, Alyscia captures and celebrates raw beauty, as she believes the media not only does a good job of focusing on our insecurities but also profiting from it. Alyscia also creates social-change projects that promote messages of self-love and acceptance. Her most recent project, I Am More Than My Hair, is a documentary film and photography book that includes interviews of women who have experienced alopecia (the partial or complete absense of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows) due to a health-related condition and how they are affected by the media's standards of beauty.
