100 Brave women expose their breasts to prove that they’re more than just a body part.
”This is how we look. This is how we feel.”
Breasts are everywhere: In movies, TV, porn and magazines, just to name a few. More often than not, they’re disconnected from the female body, and viewed as a spectacle for pleasure.
But England-based photographer Laura Dodsworth wants to change that.
Over the course of two years, she photographed 100 women from all different backgrounds, experiences and ages ranging from 19 to 100-years-old.
She wanted to turn her work into a book, called Bare Reality, but didn’t have enough money to self-publish. So instead, she turned to others for help. and created a Kickstarter fundraising page to do so.
“I think the time has never been better to hear how women really feel about their breasts, and to see how they really look,” she wrote on the page.
“More than simply part of our bodies, breasts represent sexuality, motherhood and femininity. When we talk about breasts we talk about intimate aspects of our lives as women, such as growing up, sexuality, motherhood, breastfeeding, relationships, body image, health, cancer and ageing. ,” she wrote on the fundraising page.
Now, her contribution to women’s empowerment will become a reality, one that has not only helped others come to appreciate their bodies, but help Dodsworth love hers, too.
“Bare Reality has changed how I think and feel about women as well as transformed my relationship with my breasts,” she said.
