Body Diversity

I was having a really rotten day at the office. Too much work, not enough time, too many top priorities... But on my (very short) lunch break, I found this video. Now I am smiling...

Pro Infirmis, an organization for the disabled, created a series of mannequins based on real people with physical disabilities. The beautiful process was documented in a video (watch it above), capturing the joy of the models seeing their own unique figures recreated for the first time. But the best part of it all is that the mannequins were actually placed in store windows, filling the shopfronts on Zurich's main downtown street, Bahnhofstrasse, in honor of International Day of Persons with Disabilities today.

Now tell me you aren't smiling also.
