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.
