The Nu Project is part of the online movement to show female body diversity to help women of all ages, shapes and sizes feel better about their sexuality. This one is shot by a man, Matt Blum, of Minneapolis.
Whatever you think his motives are, Mr. Blum’s photos do indeed capture a great diversity of women’s bodies in a natural and positive way. They’re of varying artistic quality and explicitness, but they tell a pretty interesting story about how these different women approach exposing themselves to the camera.
One woman wrote, “The Nu Project was such an amazing experience. Actually taking the pictures was incredible. I was nervous to open myself up like that to someone I had just met, but was pleasantly surprised when the nervousness quickly faded and the confidence of ‘this is who I am, and this is my body’ took over. Seeing the finished pictures up on the website, I am honored to be alongside all of the beautiful women.”
The Nu Project is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter. Here is their video pitch (nudity):
