"As a visual storyteller, I have seen time and time again the lack of fat representation in the media. I wanted not only to attend this camp, but to capture the under-documented experiences of fat joy and liberation."

Camp Roundup, a summer camp experience for fat women conceived by a pair of friends, was held for the first time this year in Newark, Ohio. VII Mentor Program photographer Jackie Molloy attended the camp and reflected upon her experience through photos and words for NPR.
