Lucy Beall

Lensed by Guen Fiore

“My name is Lucy Beall, I am twenty-one and am currently a student at the University of St. Andrews, in Scotland, but am originally from Texas. I am doing a joint degree in History of Art and Classics, specialising in Early Medieval art and Roman British Archeology. Before St. Andrews, I had the pleasure of studying in London with Sotheby’s institute of Art and Birkbeck College. I missed so much school as a child due to my condition, but those days staying home from school were the most valuable of my life. I owe all that I am now to them. Although I could not control what happened to my body, what it became or what it did, my condition could not touch my ability to learn. As a child I decided to let that take me as far as I could. I am an academic at heart, and hope to one day continue my work in auction houses in London, or work in museums. I take pride in my work, and enjoy talking about it in order to challenge the stigma that those with disabilities are unable to have careers or an education.”

FANTAGIRL I AM THE WOMAN I AM is a project by Fantabody in collaboration with Vogue Italia.

The photographic project made in collaboration with Giustina Guerrieri, a young communication specialist who had always an interest in voicing real stories whilst exploring the boundaries of femininity.

An ode to the female body, regardless of its shape and skin colour. A research that promotes diversity as a starting point for addressing topics such as disability or immigration, which are approached with an inclusive, curious and prejudice-free attitude. Portrayed in her seductive uniqueness, every photographed subject has the opportunity to tell her story and reveal her nature with pride. An all-female collaboration where the protagonists are shot by selected female photographers and interviewed in the form of an intimate exchange of anecdotes and experiences.

The project is published monthly on vogue.it.
