Look, Ma! I'm Naked!

I discovered the concept of boudoir photography a few days ago and was instantly intrigued. I'm always on the lookout for real photos of women, and several times have actually contemplated trying to start my own health magazine/e-zine with NO photo-shopped images. I ended up stumbling into this site: The Nu Project. The photographer, Matt Blum, has an amazing collection of non-model nude photos of differently shaped women. His only rules are: no models and no getting ready. My favorite is one from his studio gallery that is a close up shot of the lines created from the torso and legs when a woman curls up in a ball.

Even my favorite health magazine, Whole Living, is full of perfect-looking bodies. Cosmo, Self, and even Women's Health certainly aren't any different either. It's inspiring to see someone working with the natural lines and imperfections of the human body for once.

good website...nice to know that we all look different but alike at the same time...

That's some serious talent right there, to shoot all those different women and make each of them look beautiful in their own way. Really captures the person, not just the body.

I visited a site recently that photographed fat women with a similar aesthetic. It was really empowering and beautiful work, I wish i could find the link.

This is so exciting! I've seen some beautiful pictures of women and their tattoos set in this kind of theme. I'm looking forward to having my own photos done . . . once I get my brave face that is!

Thanks for sharing!

Blessed Be,
