When Beth Beard decided to lose 150 pounds (68 kg), she and her friend, Toronto-based photographer Blake Morrow, came up with a fun idea: to create a before-and-after photo series juxtaposing the old Beth with the new. The resulting playful photo series was called the Beth Project.
Their dedication to the project is impressive and inspiring – Morrow took the photos of Beard just a few weeks before her gastric bypass surgery. After the surgery, it took her 2 years to lose the weight. Once she reached her goal, she was able to step back into the photos and interact with her old self thanks to Photoshop.
