I miss my dark skin. I have Vitiligo -- an auto-immune disease where the body creates antibodies that destroy the pigment, melanin, leaving patches of white pigment-less skin, which spreads over time. So when I see girls electively going through various beauty treatments to achieve that sort of lightness of being, my blood boils. It took me up to a year to go completely white, and that was 10 years ago. So for those who voluntarily want to go lighter, I know deep down, even fifty shades won't make the least bit of difference for them.

But how do I put this all together into a modern shape for my lifestyle and age?

This dynamic between the vulnerable and the powerful brings a relevancy to the image of the Datura and other flowers by the New York-based photographer Andrew Zuckerman. The juxtaposition of rigidity and rigour and a fragile, almost feminine form gives these images their distinctive beauty.

Call me fat, call me old (or too thin and young), but I'm not afraid to tell the world that I think I'm beautiful. And no, I'm not a self-obsessed narcissist. I'm just sick and tired of advertisers, corporations and beauty products telling me I need to fix myself.
