Alyscia Cunningham is an entrepreneur, author, filmmaker and photographer who has contributed to the Smithsonian, National Geographic, Discovery Channel and AOL. In September 2013 Alyscia self-published Feminine Transitions. She is currently working on her second book and documentary film titled, I Am More Than My Hair. It includes stories of girls and women who’ve experienced hair loss (alopecia) and redefines beauty standards. Alyscia creates these, and future projects, with the consideration of art for social-impact.
Alyscia specializes in promoting our natural beauty because she believes the media does a good job of focusing on our insecurities by bombarding us with ads proclaiming that their appearance without enhancements is inadequate or faulty. Her portraits are unaltered by Photoshop and reveal women as they are naturally, without the façade they put on for others.
Her work has been featured in The Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Ashton Kutcher’s A Plus.com and Proud2BMe. To learn more about Alyscia and her work, visit Alyscia.com.
