Looking through Julie Wyman’s lens, you wonder how Olympic medalist Cheryl Haworth — at 5-foot-9 and 300 pounds — is one of the world’s premier athletes.
And then you realize that the weight is to her advantage.
Hold it. Fat is unhealthy. Fat is supposed to be bad. How can this be?
Wyman is hoping for just that reaction when people see her new documentary sometime next year. As an artist devoted to new insights into the human condition, Wyman is using video to change how people think about body weight and health.
