His most personal work to date, award-winning photographer Carlos Batts explores the often stigmatized world of the "fat girl" in his fourth published collection of photographs with wife, adult film actress, and plus-size model, April Flores. Featuring new and intimate photographs (including Flores' never-before-seen, highly mythologized early "blonde" Polaroids), Fat Girl captures an exquisite perspective unique to the celebrated "culture of beauty."
