I just found out about this amazing book project by Jade Beall, “A Beautiful Body,” and I have to share with you.
“A Beautiful Body” is a book of portraits currently in the works that aims to celebrate unPhotoshopped, real mothers and their changing bodies. Photographer, Jade Beall is traveling the country and meeting with women who are interested in being part of changing society’s view on body-image & what is considered beautiful. The book will consist of 100 or more black & white portraits of mothers. Not only that, but the women will be able to tell their own story as well. Stories about self-hatred, feeling unsexy, and much more. It all sounds pretty interesting! I am sure many women will be able to relate to the mothers in this book project.
Jade Beall is funding “A Beautiful Body” through a Kicktarter campaign and aims to complete the book in January 2014. Afterwards she hopes to continue with volumes on different topics such as women living with cancer, women facing aging and women facing eating disorders. So please check her website out and take a look at some of the beautiful photographs. There is also a section on there with FREE things you can do to help out if you are unable to donate to her campaign at the time.
