This series was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Imagery in the media is an illusion built upon lighting, angles & photoshop. People can look extremely attractive under the right circumstances & two seconds later transform into something completely different.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

Wearing just underwear, she drapes one arm over her bare breasts while the other is wrapped over her head, holding the camera. In all of the shots, we don't get to see the photographer's face, though at the end of the series, she's holding her adorable 2-month-old son Simon who had been steadily growing in her belly. What are your thoughts on this series? Should women's bodies be celebrated, especially during times of pregnancy? Or, for your taste, is this all a bit too contrived? Currently, as a pregnant woman, I can't help but admire her bravery. Although beautiful, I don't think I could muster the courage to do…
