Strong Is The New Pretty

Kate T. Parker

Atlanta-based photographer Kate T. Parker's book, Strong Is the New Pretty, showcased girlhood in all its messy, muddy glory. The book featured portraits of girls and young women whose beauty came from being their authentic selves.

Now she's doing the same thing with boys. Her new book, The Heart of a Boy, is out April 2. Parker joined On Second Thought to discuss the messages of empowerment that run through her books.
