Topless Challenge Exposes More Than Just a Hairy Chest

In an age where the troubles of life can be glossed over with an Instagram filter, issues with one's own body image are more prevelant than ever. Caleb Meakins started a 40 day challenge to help himself overcome his fea of failure, and Day 23 focused on body image. He went about the streets of London asking people to take photos of him, but when before the photo gets snapped, the challenge was for him to take his shirt off. Not as a prank or gag, but as a way for him to overcome his own body image issues. He was able to complete the challenge, and is hopefully filled with a little more self-confidence than his Pre-Day 23 Challenge self was.
