Babette the Beastly Beauty

Babette the Beastly Beauty

 

Babette has a congenital condition called Hypertrichosis which results in excessive body hair that may cover the face and entire body in many cases.

 

Although based on real-life medical conditions, this series represents my own imaginative responses to the unique beauty of those born different and human diversity in general. They are works of imaginative mythology that I hope will help people to find and appreciate the beauty of the "strange" and unfamiliar.
