I’ve been following the work of a friend of a friend from Tucson, Arizona. Jade Beall photographs women’s bodies in a way I have never seen before.
Far from the recent, half-hearted pledges of certain women’s magazine not to photoshop their models, this is a look at women who are not photoshopped, are not models, and are all beautiful. Wonderful work.
“Beall — who describes her photography as “medicinal” — intends her book as balm not only for the women who volunteer to be photographed, but also the society whose expectations she’s hoping to heal.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/24/a-beautiful-body-book-project-jade-beall-photos_n_3467178.html
