Created by Ilenia Pezzaniti, #iwokeuplikethis is a photo series started in 2015 which promotes women's self-esteem. #iwokeuplikethis is about redefining beauty in our own individual terms and owning our definitions. It is about creating peace within the self and teaching our our offspring the same values. It is about inspiring all genders to remove the stereotypical toxic ideas of beauty and the things we do to achieve such heights, and instead see to love our own truths and the truths of others.

Form Follows Beauty
Picture yourself relaxing on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, sipping coconut juice, all the while taking time to enjoy the simple, fluid contours of the waves and mountains. Are you getting it?

In this edition of "Presentation of the Day", Exley speaks of the "free and sensual curves" he illustrates on his iPhone while out and about. He demonstrates the importance of recognizing the meandering lines found in nature, and shows how some architects (like the recently passed Oscar Niemeyer) translate these lines into their work. You'll find, as he says, "form doesn't follow function, form follows beauty".
