Local photographer Jenn Fortune is unveiling a new photography exhibit called "Feel Beautiful, Know Your Beauty” which focuses on helping women. Fortune said that she brought in models of all shapes and sizes, from the ages of 18 to 83, of all ethnic backgrounds.

“As a photographer my passion is to always help women feel beautiful,” Fortune said. She added that the exhibit focuses on beauty from the inside-out.

Model Lezlie Terry helped Fortune and the other models find their confidence, “We’re women, and we’re beautiful”

Proceeds from the exhibit will be raised for the Women’s Center in Carbondale. The exhibit takes place July 16 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Illinois Star Centre Mall in Marion.
