The Nu Project

nu-project

If you know someone who might be interested, please encourage them to visit our. Matt + Katy Stretch Goal! There is a lack of women of color, no transgender women, few women of Asian or Middle Eastern heritage and many other shortfalls that need to be addressed. It highlights honest pictures of women, their bodies, their emotions, and their environments. If you were to use the 11-year-old as your gauge, the answer would be somewhat different: In essence, there is no average nude body. You will be asked to enter your pledge amount and select a reward. The couple travels around America—North and South—and takes pictures of women who volunteer to be part of it.

Naked Bodies: The NU Project with Matt Blum

nu-project

The project really took off in 2009, when Blum's wife, Katy Kessler, began editing the series. Most everyone has their story: the time they were bullied because of their body, their weight, their look, etc. It's a lot harder to find models due to how much more personal the shoots are, so we anticipate a lot of trips to New York City and Los Angeles in order to complete the work. What absolutely has changed is the way my brain perceives beauty and who I'm attracted to. The Nu Project, a collection of nude photographs shot by Minneapolis photographer Matt Blum, seeks to add some variety to the mix. If you're interested in being a participant, please head over to The Nu Project page to sign up there.

The Nu Project's Nude Photos Tell The Truth About Women's Bodies

nu-project

In terms of my own body, I don't know that I have seen much change since I started shooting. The book is expected to be published this fall and will ship shortly afterwards. Over a decade of work , Blum and Kessler have photographed over 250 women across North America, South America and Europe, and today, they continue to recruit volunteers on their website's. Regardless of book sales, we'll keep shooting this project maybe forever? These women looked comfortable posing in their own skin. In their resulting images, women of many sizes, ages, races and identities -- women who've undergone gastric bypass surgery, are pregnant, or live with scars from past illnesses -- bare their bodies for Blum and Kessler's lenses, boldly presenting a different kind of nude image for themselves, and the other women and men who lay eyes on the series.

The Nu Nation Project

She gave me permission to be a little weird and to take the images a little less seriously. These days the collection continues to grow; over 150 women some with their partners have participated as un-models, most in their own homes. Their skin sagged, their tummies rolled, and their teeth gleamed from behind their grins in a naturally sunlit setting. In regards to The Nu Project, we hope to sell 200-300 more copies of in order to fund the next rounds of shoots which we're hoping will take place in Israel. Free shipping for domestic orders. We've started work on a new project, similar to what the Nu Project is to body positivity, but centered on sex positivity. Or a struggle with an eating disorder.

We believe in it, so we keep doing it. If you were to use pop culture --circa the mid-aughts, specifically -- as your barometer, your answer might look like the swath of thin, light-skinned women found on television, in film, or on the pages of magazines. The hardest part for us is that the project is 100% volunteer, so I do not see the women until I show up at their door. Most men are judged on their jobs. She selects all the images, writes the copy, co-curates the social media when we have time, which is almost never and without her there would be no project anymore.

The Nu Project Has Been Redefining The Nude Photo For Over A Decade

nu-project

Every person could suffer from body image issues, but for women, body objectification is ever-present. His subjects, called un-models, were volunteers through word-of-mouth or Craigslist--they came with their stories, their successes and failures, their scars, their survival of abusive relationships, their tales of triumph over body image--and he photographed them. There are more smiling, happy images and a little irreverence. The main idea is that no matter who you are or what you're into, be honest with yourself, your partner s and do what makes you happy. The project has completely transformed from what it was when I started it, and I give her full credit for the shape it has taken. The Nu Project started with , a freelance photographer and web developer based in Minneapolis, Minn, who, in 2005, was seeking a way to subvert the typical image of a nude woman that dominated mainstream media.

More Information Thank you to everyone who helped make this book a reality! You can also pre-order the book as a way of funding its publication. There are so many women for whom seeing your image might bring peace and acceptance. Part of that is unfortunately due to the fact that I struggled with the same disordered eating that many other people do. I have no problem photoshopping out a zit that someone got before the shoot, but I don't see any reason to slim someone's waist line, increase their breast size or remove the texture from their skin. The site I found is called , a photography art project based out of Minneapolis by photographer Matt Blum and his wife Katy. His goal was simple: he eschewed professional models and glamour in favor of capturing a diverse array of nude volunteers in poses and makeup comfortable to their personalities.
