These photographs are neck-down only, front and back. These photographs are un-"enhanced” and unedited in any way. The models are not wearing any kind of body makeup. These photos are not meant to be attractive or perfect or sexy. They are meant to be honest. If traditional art is the idealized depiction of "beautiful" forms, then this is an anti-art project. This project is a protest against pre-packaged beauty and conformist aesthetics. It is a celebration of the human form. The purpose of this project it to promote discussion. This is part photographic catologue, part documentary, part cultural commentary, part political statement, but mostly it is a revolution.
