Sam Smith got candid about his struggles with body image all thanks to a special photo shoot he did with photographer Ryan Pfluger.
The “Dancing with a Stranger” singer posted a photo of himself shirtless on the beach.
“Some may take this as narcissistic and showing off but if you knew how much courage it took to do this and the body trauma I have experienced as a kid you wouldn’t think those things. Thank you for helping me celebrate my body AS IT IS @ryanpfluger I have never felt safer than I did with you. I’ll always be at war with this bloody mirror but this shoot and this day was a step in the right fucking direction,” he went on.
Pfluger also shared how important the photo shoot was for him as well with his own Instagram post of Smith.
“Being a photographer can often be a very thankless job (let’s not even get started on overdue payments, lack of crediting, unrealistic expectations etc.) – Yet true collaboration brings all the gratitude and good vibes for complete fulfillment. Seeing the appreciation for body positivity & mental health today has been… humbling to say the least. Thank you again
